Thanks to Lynn Miles for Stepping Up for Afghan Refugees!

OCRA was thrilled to work with Ottawa singer/songwriter Lynn Miles in October 2022 to raise funds for our Afghan refugee sponsorships. Lynn generously devoted her time onstage at Irene’s Pub in the Glebe on three consecutive Wednesday evenings to help us raise money. Lynn sang her song, What if I Were a Refugee, told the story of our Afghan doctors group, and passed the tip jar each night. The audience really responded. As a result of Lynn’s help, OCRA was able to raise over $8,000. Heartfelt thanks to Lynn and volunteer, Barb Thompson, who arranged this great fundraiser!
