Objectives

Being a refugee or asylum seeker means reaching a foreign land after fleeing one’s home in fear. It means leaving everything and everyone behind.

At DAR, we want to ensure that those men, women, and children who come to us, not as a choice but as to save their lives, have the warm welcome they deserve. 

We offer them a safe and friendly environment where they can get the support they need to rebuild their lives in our country. We introduce them to our system and community as we would a dear friend who just moved from abroad. We respect their culture and heritage and cherish the richness they bring into our lives.
