With Teams in: Calgary
What moves you? Join us on October 5, 2019 for the Ride for Refuge, a family-friendly cycling and walking fundraiser that supports charities who provide refuge and hope for displaced, vulnerable and exploited people everywhere.
Who we are
We are a Christian non-profit organization working in vulnerable communities across sub-Saharan Africa where HIV/AIDS, poverty and numbers of orphans are highest and support structures are very low. We help the local church in those communities to effectively care for the orphaned and vulnerable. Our ministry is to all those in need, regardless of race, class or religion.
What we do
We identify local Christian leaders within vulnerable communities who are already demonstrating a passion to serve the poor and broken in their community and to fulfill the biblical mandate to care for the orphaned and vulnerable. We support those leaders in developing a locally-owned organization in their community and begin a long-term relationship of service and partnership, where we continually work to increase the community's capacity to provide care in an effective and holistic manner.
Why we Ride
We are riding on behalf of the many children we know by name who have buried their parents, experienced abuse and trauma, and who are feeling hopeless. We hope our participation in this ride will continue to enable the local communities to bring love, hope and healing to these children and families.
