Make a direct impact on your community by donating to CCIS (Calgary Catholic Immigration Society).
A widow with two young girls is living in a homeless shelter; the family breadwinner is admitted to hospital for major heart surgery; a 16-year-old disabled boy requires special orthopedic shoes on a regular basis; and a family of five, with three children, are living in a tiny basement suite. They have no space for the third son to sleep, so he spends each night in the home of neighbours.
The stories of our refugee clients are as varied as the individuals themselves.
When you donate, 100% of monies received go directly to refugee families most in need, there is no administrative fee. You may earmark your donations to any one of our 70+ programs or areas of support.
