Who are we?
We (HHRM) are a non-profit organization in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Our goal is to sponsor as many refugees as possible so long as they arrive safely and have access to proper living conditions once here.
We strongly believe that it is our responsibility to make sure that all refugees arriving to Canada have adequate living conditions and equal opportunities to flourish. Our dedicated staff and volunteers work with the community to make this all happen.
We rely heavily on the contributions and generous donations of our fellow Canadians to allow us to operate and grow according to the needs of newcomers. Please consider making a donation today [see Make a donation for details].
