Was my contribution to Afghan refugee assistance helpful to anyone? Absolutely! The gifts that BPC members donated for refugee assistance enabled a family of seven to move from a homeless shelter to an apartment. Donations also went to the National Capital Presbytery Refugee Ministries Network which, in relationship with Greenwich Presbyterian and Capital Hill Presbyterian, provides emergency funding for Afghan refugees. Donations of furniture, labor, and monies also allowed a young Afghan woman and her brother to set up an apartment. All the recipients have expressed their gratitude for the great compassion and love evident in these gifts.
