World Refugee Day
Every day thousands of people become refugees. Driven from their homes and communities by war and violence, these innocent families leave behind everything that they have to seek safety for themselves and for their children.
Now more then ever, the world needs to embrace the fact that we are all children of God. Every life matters. Every person deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. Every child, woman, and man bears the image of our creator.
As Canadian Baptists we are engaged in front-line work with refugees in Canada and around the world. This World Refugee Day we stand together in solidarity with families and individuals who are desperate for peace and a future. We move beyond self-interest to serve the interest of those who are most vulnerable. From relief projects in places like South Sudan to interventions with refugee families in places like Kenya to sponsoring families coming to Canada, we are proud to be a part of the Canadian Baptist community.
We can all be a part of building a better world.
