Help Refugees in Rome Find Jobs
As many refugees as have been arriving in Greece, even more have been landing on the shores of Italy in recent months. Most end up in Rome and applying for asylum there, but the process is long and difficult. It’s a struggle to provide basic necessities for yourself, write a resume, and find a job in an environment and language that is completely foreign.
That’s where our friends in Rome step in and help, through the refugee day center that they run. They help men like Meer*, a talented Kurdish artist who fled ISIS, and who had almost given up in despair before finally finding a job doing art therapy and teaching about art.
This is just one of the many stories that our friends can tell. A little bit of help, some language classes, and an offer of friendship can make more of a difference than you know. We can provide the supplies needed to help refugees survive in Rome as they pursue employment and start a new life.

These guys have been working in Iraq for 25 years. Glad I could help them do their job.

I can't afford much, but I like knowing I can make a real difference for someone.
I always wanted our church to help out but never knew how. So glad to learn about ShopForRefugees!
