WEPC is sponsoring the resettlement of two Afghan families (a family of 8 and a family of 4) here in Richmond.  These families came from Afghanistan to the US in August and they came to Richmond the first of December.   We are partnering with the International Rescue Committee (IRC) to welcome these families.  Because God has given us all things in Christ, we, as the Body of Christ, would like to pour out the blessings of God on these families.

There is list of required items that must be in place before a refugee family can move in to their permanent housing. Please prayerfully consider how you can respond in Jesus' name.  

Items with an * must be new according to United States guidelines for refugee resettlement.

We would like to begin collecting items immediately.  There are bins in the foyer of WEPC to collect small items.  We have secured a nearby storage facility to hold large items. Thank you in advance for your support of these two families!  Merry Christmas!
