Community Connections

Kootenay Refugee Coalition

Ascension, together with Nelson United Church and individual supporters, has worked together for over twenty years to sponsor multiple families and individuals as refugees from around the world.

Most recently, in December 2019, we completed the sponsorship of an Eritrean family of five. We are now looking to assist this family with the sponsorship of five additional family members.

(The pandemic has slowed any immigration to Canada, so presently this project is on hold.)
