In the face of the worsening global refugee crisis, KAIROS calls for welcome and solidarity

icon for Refugees Welcome

Welcome Refugees, Welcome Neighbours

KAIROS joins those voices urging Canada to respond with urgency and commitment to the largest refugee crisis since World War II. Images and the staggering numbers of lives affected break our hearts. We simply must do more as a country. And we know that we can. This is about welcoming our neighbours in a world where borders and distance should not isolate us from concern for the dignity of every human being. Please join your voice to what should truly be a national anthem of welcome.
