Refugees in Myanmar are facing political violence, oppression and tyranny.  Innocent people are fleeing from their homes and living as internal refugees in their own country.  They need our compassion NOW. CLWR’s goal is to build 29 longhouses to shelter these refugees.  The cost for one longhouse is $9810. More information available at: clwr.donorshops.com/product/A202104S/spring-appeal

Please join Trinity Lutheran Hamilton, Christ Latvian and Faith Brantford to raise enough money for one longhouse.  You may donate through your offering envelope or by an E transfer to Faith’s Email faithlutheran1@bellnet.ca
