The Thompson Local News


As refugees continue to cross the border near Emerson and get transported to Winnipeg, The Salvation Army is continuing their efforts to support them.

 

Major Rob Kerr, a spokesperson for the Salvation Army, spoke to 102.9 CHTM and said that they were contacted by Welcome Place and asked to help.

 

The Salvation Army opened up beds for those who needed it.

 

Kerr said that if the Army hadn't provided the beds, the refugees would be out on the streets of Winnipeg, as they are unsponsored immigrants and do not qualify currently for government assistance and can't get jobs.

 

Major Kerr added at the best way people can help is by making financial donations, as the refugees aren't sponsored.


Because of that, they don't currently qualify for government assistance and cannot get a job.

 

If anyone wants to make a donation, you can do so by calling 204-975-1033
