Refugee Sponsorship
Our goal: sponsor 20 persecuted families

In 2020, the ACGTA, with a partner church and committee, began the process of sponsoring two persecuted Afghan Christian refugee families to Canada. When Afghanistan fell to Taliban rule in 2021, the committee decided to raise funds to sponsor 20 families to Canada.


It can cost over $10,000 per individual sponsored, so we are looking for faithful believers and churches to partner with us to raise funds to bring these families to safety.

Practical goods

See the list of currently needed household goods to help furnish families' new homes, and let us know if you can help.


We will contact you if and when a family needs your offered item(s), but since we do not know when families will be approved to come to Canada, we don't know when that may be.
