"This Christmas, people who have fled war and persecution will be sleeping on Manchester's streets, with nothing. Hopeless. Like I was. You can change that. You can help Boaz bring them hope." - Noah*
*Name changed for security
We will not accept homelessness and destitution as the norm for people who have come to the UK seeking safety. Boaz housing is a lifeline for people who have nowhere else to turn, and who have been failed by the government.
But we can't continue to open the doors of our houses without you. People like you - who long to see life in all its fullness for people seeking safety in the UK - are the backbone of the work we do.
At Boaz we believe people power can change things. As the government's Illegal Migration Act is rolled out, and the door is slammed shut in the faces of those who came here hoping for protection, together we can offer something better.
A gift to our Christmas Appeal could mean a home for someone who would otherwise be facing destitution. It could mean the warmth of being supported and seen as a whole person - not as a number, a problem or a threat. It could mean hope for someone who can no longer see a way to carry on.
You can open the doors this Christmas.
