Story

I moved to England about 10 years ago and as a foreigner, an immigrant and a mom of two, I've met wonderful people and I have been receiving a lot of support from my lovely community in Bearwood/ Sandwell. This time, I am grateful for being able to return a favor to my lovely community where people help each other with kindness and compassion. 

I am raising money in support of Brushstrokes community project. Brushstrokes services have developed over the years, particularly in response to the needs of newcomers. Brushstrokes engages with asylum seekers and helps them establish a place of safety in the UK. Brushstrokes welcomes people from over 100 countries.The work with refugees continues to expand, helping them to rebuild their lives and settle into new homes, education and work in Sandwell. The core activities are driven by the needs of the people who use the services, both in the community and those identified on outreach visits.These are:The provision of practical resources to destitute and homeless people and those living in extreme poverty, including food, baby products, clothing and other essential items;Reaching out into local communities by visiting and befriending isolated and excluded people in their own homes and through Welcome';Teaching English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL),
