As Canadians observe World Refugee Day today, Winnipeg-based Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR) is reflecting on its 70 years of refugee support. The organization was founded in 1946 to help resettle refugees from post-war Europe. In its first six years of operation it helped more than 33,000 people start a new life in Canada.
Faith in Action:
The plight of refugees, especially those from Syria, dominated the news earlier this year. Although not currently as visible in the media, there are still 60 million refugees around the world—families who left everything behind to save themselves from war, persecution, or danger. And CLWR is on the forefront of providing care and support for hundreds of these families.
