In 2016 a government-funded community grant was stopped; this grant made it possible for many disadvantaged groups, in particular refugees, to access much-needed funds to start a new life and build a home by purchasing household items. With the OHOB resettlement project, we were able to fill the gap and help with providing the much-needed items to set up home and begin rebuilding a new life we wanted to provide a small piece of comfort to those in need. We either purchase items, give small grants or access items from the community. Since 2016 we have helped 100's of individuals and dozens of families across Devon and Cornwall.
With your financial help we can do so much more...... big love and thank you

What we have achieved:
We have supported many of the Syrian families resettled in the South West and helped dozens of other refugee families and 100s of individuals with resettlement support. We support many different projects across Devon and Cornwall including a women's drug rehabilitation project, and several homeless projects with items of food, clothing, household goods, shelter and warmth for the homeless, and baby items and various hygiene and toiletry items.
We have created wish lists and supplied lots of baby essential items, to new mothers and various items of clothing, food, and toiletries to families or those who are destitute. We have supplied much needed foldaway beds, and hotplates to use for those who currently have no permanent residence and in temporary accommodation or to families and individuals who are waiting to obtain accommodation. We have purchased, or sourced from the community and delivered, dozens and dozens of essential baby items, clothing and household items including white goods fridge freezers, washing machines, cookers and fridges soft furnishings, beds, bedding wardrobes, sofas, microwaves, kitchen goods, crockery and many other items.
