Team The Welcome Committee’s story

Want to help changes two whole families' lives and make a difference in your community? And all with just one donation?


If you, like us, have watched endless horrifying news reports of the destruction in Syria and beyond, and seen images of families forced to run for their lives from their homes; and felt that you wanted to do something - anything - to help, then we have the perfect opportunity for you.


The Welcome Committee is a group of concerned Londoners doing something positive as a community to support refugees. We are sponsoring two refugee families to settle in London - giving them a fresh start, the chance to rebuild their lives in peace and hopefully have a new place they can call home.


These refugee families have been identified by the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and the Home office as in need of resettlement, and the Home office select the families for us. The families will have official refugee status.


The first family arrived in November 2018 and are settling well into life in London. We're hoping to welcome a second family as soon as we can.


This is your chance to change lives. Please donate today, and share with anyone else you think might want to help. Thank you.


All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

Migrants Organise Ltd.

Migrants Organise set up a hardship fund for our members affected by the pandemic COVID19. Many are destitute and suffer from ongoing mental health issues, they are either homeless or living in crowded shared accommodation. Many already struggle with isolation in their daily lives and it is bound to become much worse during the pandemic. They often do not have family or friends to look after them in case of need. 

To support them we will be providing remote mental health support and sending out what they need by post e.g. supermarket vouchers for shops near where they live. Or shop for the essentials online on their behalf. Migrants, refugees and asylum-seekers are amongst the most vulnerable groups that will suffer the most during the pandemic. Please help us support them through this challenging time by donating to the fund now. All you have to do is press the green button here above.

Thanks for your support, we are immensely grateful!

The Migrants Organise Team

---

Migrants Organise is a platform where refugees and migrants act together for dignity and justice. We develop leadership and open up spaces for relational, organised participation of migrants and refugees in public life.


We know that migrants and refugees make a positive contribution to our country. Migration is a fact of life, so instead of resisting it – let’s organise it! 


Your donations help us to:

  • Build common ground, by bringing diverse people together around shared issues, on a shared platform
  • Connect people, helping them to belong, thrive, and contribute
  • Speak out, make our voices heard, and take a stand on the issues that affect migrants, refugees and asylum seekers
  • Provide opportunities for migrants to grow power and to develop skills, leadership, confidence and connections

Thank you for your support - your contributions really do make a difference.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
