Helping Refugees During COVID Times

COVID-19 has certainly created many new and unexpected problems for our under-served communities and families.  Through our partners at Legacy Mission Village (LMV), we began focusing on addressing the food insecurity and financial insecurity that LMV's families were facing.  They are a Tennessee based non-profit that is focused on helping refugee families who have been relocated to Tennessee due to famine, genocide, war and poverty, in primarily African countries.  We have been working with them for over 15 years, even before founding Dream of a Better World.  Our recent partnership has translated into providing food, medical aid and even funeral funds for refugee families affected by COVID.  As another example of LMV's community impact, they normally delivers 20,000 free diapers a month through their no contact drive-thru diaper days. They are an AMAZING group!

Recently, Dream of a Better World received notice of an new, unique additional challenge that LMV refugee families are facing.  Most of their clients are still learning English, and are now struggling with the online learning process for their children who are now at home.  Not only do they need online equipment and access, but they need volunteers to help navigate the virtual schooling system.  

We are very thankful for all of the efforts of LMV and our partnership with them.  Thanks to ALL OF YOU, we will continue to support them through this challenging time!

With much LOVE,
