Our New Creation UMC family has the blessed opportunity to welcome a refugee family, the Lakokoura family. They are a refugee family of 7, who came to the United States with the assistance of World Relief Services, most directly from Cameroon.  They had been displaced in at least 2 other African countries prior to arriving in Cameroon.

The Lakokoura family will be moving into a house this month and are in need of financial assistance to help pay their deposit.  We, New Creation, are pledging $700 in assistance to the family.  Any amount you are able to contribute is greatly appreciated.

In addition, the family is in need of basic household items.  The following donations are needed:

  • Bedding for double size beds 
  • Bath towels 
  • Silverware - already donated
  • Cookware 
  • Small appliances 
  • Dishes 
  • Glassware 
  • Washer and Dryer 

Thank you for you generosity and for extending hospitality to a stranger.
