Campaign Goal: $100,000 by June 30, 2017
Right now, at this very moment, we are witnessing the highest levels of displaced peoples – by war, conflict or persecution – on record. An unprecedented 65.3 million people around the world have been forced from home. Among them are nearly 21.3 million refugees, over half of whom are under the age of 18.
PIMCO’s Newport Beach Refugee Action Team, an employee-led effort to strategize how to leverage PIMCO talent and skills to address this humanitarian crisis, has created this housing campaign, through which we hope to raise enough funds to provide rental assistance for one year to five refugee families who have resettled in Orange County.
It is a well-known fact that refugees struggle tremendously with housing needs. Our Refugee Action Team believes that if secure housing can be provided, then refugees can focus on other important aspects to re-building their lives: getting children in school, finding jobs, and acclimating culturally.
Access California Services is our partner in this campaign, and we are both delighted with and grateful for their work, mission, and vision. For more on AccessCal, please visit the homepage here.
