In August 2021, we welcomed 170 people who came from Afghanistan after the Taliban problem in Kabul. We worked with the local churches and local community groups who supported us with donations for the newly arrived families. The churches have been very supportive of the mission. St. John the Baptist church at Mt Bures, Hope Community Witham, Castle Methodist church, Fordham church and most of the local community groups in Colchester.
We visited the newly arrived families after they got home from the refugee centre and provided them with items such as a fridge, freeze, washing machine, cooker, sofas and a bed. We are involved with these newly arrived families to provide them with all their needs, like: clothes, shoes, toys for the children, food (on a weekly basis) kitchen equipment, beddings, gardening tools, hoovers, mirrors and hair driers and we visit them regularly to support them and give them advise for education and NHS and the rest of the rules in UK. We also connected them with families through churches, so they can befriend them rather than be isolated.
