What will I do when the people arrive?

How do I sponsor a refugee?

Jan 28 2023 • 27 mins

In this episode, Kate and Mark talk through the tasks, the roles and the necessary sensitivities of refugee sponsors. They address bureaucratic necessities; financial, medical and other Canadian systems; language learning; and learning from each other across cultures.

We will continue to go into detail in the next couple of episodes about what is involved in taking on this work, guided by respectful relationships and by the needs of the people you are helping. In later episodes we will run interviews with newcomers and with sponsorship groups about their experience, and we will look at some of the reasons why so many people worldwide are displaced from their homes and communities.
