WRAP is a network of individuals committed to assisting local refugees from Burma achieve sustainable self‐reliance through mentoring, advocacy and providing material support as needed. Our primary goal is to assist our friends from Burma in attaining economic independence, establishing a true community and learning how to access services. We are an independent non‐profit organization that works to complement and augment the efforts of other organizations and individuals assisting resettled refugees.

Join us for celtic 5k!
Only 2 weeks left! Please help support our youth to run the Celtic 5K
on March 9, 2014. We have 15 teenagers who are very excited to be training for their first race! We did some hill climbing exercises with them yesterday to strengthen their core :)
Go to www.celtic5k.com to register to run for the WRAP team. Pledge $50 to support a refugee youth member to run the race and to raise funds for them to go camping this summer.
If you are not a runner, you can still support a youth! Just go to our website to donate through PayPal: www.worcesterrefugees.org.
Please help us spread the word by sharing this FB page link: http://cts.vresp.com/c/?WorcesterRefugeeAssi/ec20b30744/78fb473195/9b0eefed74
This should be a family friendly fun event with a St Patrick's Day parade down Park Ave after the race. So come and cheer us on.
