In recognition of #WorldRefugeeDay, the Surrey Local Immigration Partnership partnered with 17 community-serving agencies in the South Fraser region to celebrate and bring the community together through performance, food, and stories.
Around 150 community members gathered for this celebration at Fleetwood Community Centre on June 20th!
Some highlights of this celebration were a dance performance by Afghan refugee artists, story sharing by refugee storytellers who shared their journeys and experiences with us. These stories of strength and resilience were heartwarming and inspiring.
Community members mingled and connected over Latin and middle eastern food.
Grateful to our community partner tables for their support! Information booths for community services across the South Fraser region offered resources to community members.
