World Refugee Day

June 20 is World Refugee Day.

It’s a day to bring attention to the more than 27 million refugees in the world (this doesn’t include the increasing number of refugees from Ukraine).

At Cal Bombay Ministries, every day is refugee day. Through our Gardens of Hope project in Uganda, we are helping refugees from South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo plant gardens.

The refugees are provided with beans and maize from the UN. But beans and maize for every meal gets tiresome. The refugees long for a change in their diet, and for a more balanced diet. That’s why they are excited to plant their gardens and feast on the bounty of vegetables they produce.

It’s rainy season in Uganda now, so it’s the time to plant. Your gift of $50 today will provide tools, seeds, and training for a family.

And in June, every dollar given through Canada Helps, enters us for a chance to win $20,000. That would mean an additional 400 families could benefit from a garden this year.
