The Humanity Fund - Supporting Refugees in Struggle



Refugees are Human Beings

Like so many of you, Steelworkers have been watching, devastated, as the refugee crisis overseas worsens. In a wealthy country like ours, we should be able to do more.

The Steelworkers Humanity Fund is making $100,000 available to sponsor Syrian refugees to Canada and contributing $40,000 to support Oxfam's emergency relief efforts for Burundian refugees.

In doing this work, we recognize that we have an opportunity to elect a government that will offer refuge to those in need. Canada can and must play a leadership role in responding to the global refugee crisis.
