Tenth’s Refugee Outreach ministry is currently supporting and caring for a refugee family from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The family fled that violent and war-torn country and spent 17 years in refugee camps in Tanzania and Malawi before being approved, by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, to resettle in this country.
Tenth volunteers have worked alongside this family for the past five years as they rebuild their lives and become increasingly independent. Relationships with the family have grown and deepened. When needs arise, team members provide resources, guidance, connection with community services, and other sources of support.
