Members of our Toronto chapter paid a visit to Adam House , a temporary home for new refugees in Toronto, to share stories, pray and worship with the residents. They also brought special “home kits” for those who were leaving the house to start their new lives in Canada in their own apartments.
The evening started with great interaction and a time of fellowship with residents of the home. The discussion for the evening was centred around the the inspiring life stories of Mother Theresa, Alfred Nobel, founder of the Nobel Peace Prize and Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace. The residents were fascinated by the story of Alfred Nobel who invented the dynamite bomb. However in his quest to be known for what stood for the opposite of destruction, he devoted his estate to funding the Nobel Peace Prize.
After that our volunteers made a formal presentation of special new home packs to 10 refugees moving out from Adam House, to further support them and help them settle down in their new homes.
Adam House Executive Director, Lucy Chaimiti commended our volunteers for their consistency, generosity and thoughtfulness. She stated that, “HOPE worldwide Canada provides tremendous material and moral support to Adam House.”
The final part of the evening was a wonderful time of serving dinner and sharing with almost 50 refugees in the home. We would like to thank Carral Peter, who prepared all the food.
It is gratifying that our HOPE worldwide Canada volunteers offered hope and support to the refugees at Adam House.
