A New Start
For people facing conflict or disaster, the offer of support means everything. That is exactly what this gift can provide. It can provide food and clean, safe water during a crisis. It can give shelter and warmth. And, for people forced to flee their homes, it can give support and protection – and the chance of a new start.
Right now, the world is in the middle of a refugee crisis, affecting millions of people. In Sicily, thousands of migrants arrive each year, seeking a new life. Oxfam works with an association called AccoglieRete that helps unaccompanied children arriving in Sicily to get the support of a legal guardian – someone who’s there for them, to help them rebuild their lives.
