TOGETHER, LET’S MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Sponsoring a refugee is a big responsibility. Sharing our resources and working together will help more people efficiently. 

The North Okanagan Refugee Committee is a group of individuals and organizations working together to sponsor refugees in our region and ensure that they are welcomed, supported and empowered to rebuild their lives. We are here to provide information on how you can get involved and make an impact in the lives of refugees: find out more about the sponsorship process, consider donating funds to established sponsorship groups or volunteer your time helping refugees to settle in the North Okanagan. There are many ways to help – please explore our website to find resources, ideas and contact information.
