the-refuge-logo deuteronomy-1018-meme

Hello Everyone, the Refuge/Refuge Ministries is doing a holiday season fund drive for Families and Individuals suffering from Poverty, Homelessness, and disenfranchisement. Our model or philosophy is based on Solidarity and cooperation alongside and led by the Oppressed classes.
We are not a top down charity. WE ARE TRYING TO RAISE $5000.

We are a Faith based Ministry that reaches out through Spiritual services, direct assistance, activism and advocacy, counseling, referrals, housing and Financial assistance, arts/culture, and a radio program. We have both Domestic and Foreign missions. Currently, we reach out to 68 orphaned girls in Sierra Leone with our partner, under our support and alongside, Abdul Sesay, a Sierra Leone National who supports and runs this outreach. These girls were orphaned by the Ebola Crisis and would otherwise be human trafficked or mistreated by the system. Additionally, we have a worker rights organizer in Porta Prince, Haiti, named David Oxygen, a Haitian National. Additionally, we have a radio show on the WTAN tan talk network called the Revolutionary Road Radio Show currently on the web, youtube, and 5 radio stations.

Lastly, we reach out domestically through our subsidiaries: Hearts for God Worship Outreach in Brooksville, Florida, The Healing Refuge of Middle TN., Robin Harris in Orlando, PPERHC Florida, Richard Peete Homeless Outreach, and CRYS (Coalition for the Reform of Youth Services, running among other things a Youth/Young adult mentor home). You can support us by calling the Refuge at 727 278 1547 or sending tax deductible checks to the Refuge, 3705 58th Ave. North St. Pete., Florida 33714.

WE ARE LOOKING FINANCIAL GIFTS, GIFT CARDS FOR GAS, GROCERIES, AND DEPARTMENT STORES. YOU CAN ALSO DONATE BY PAY PAL: https://www.paypal.me/TheRefugeFL.

PLEASE KEEP US IN YOUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS!
