Red Cross is an organization that is focused on international humanitarian work, supporting causes such as the refugee crisis, homelessness, and natural disasters. The SFU branch of Red Cross works to inform people about what we do, what we do differently, and what we support.

For me, helping refugees is what matters because I have family who have been under refugee status. I know people who’ve gone through it and it’s an important part of my life.

One of the events we did was called Faces of Refugees. We put flags up in Saywell Hall with the stories and images of refugees from all different countries; all different places around the world. When students walk through the Saywell Hall, they could see all these flags and see what stories might be personal for them. Refugees are from all around the world, and we want everyone to recognize the struggle people go through.
