Upcoming event: Camp to Campus

March 22, 2018

On April 4, 2018 WUSC Regina presents the event: Camp to Campus, which features stories from some of our students who were sponsored through WUSC. We will be putting these stories on display in the Ridell Centre so that our university community can learn more about what our organization does and some of their classmates’ stories.

Facts you may not know:
– a small portion of everyone’s student fees goes towards supporting the students we sponsor (helping to bring them here, supporting living and housing costs for one semester, etc)
– some, but not all of our students, have experience in a refugee camp. And even for those who do, what the “camp” was differs quite a bit depending on the individual’s situation and location

For this event, we will also be offering coffee and raising money for our group on a donation basis.

Here is a sneak peak of one of the stories you can expect to see:
