Seeking a sewing machine

Seeking a sewing machine for a highly skilled newcomer

Do you have a spare sewing machine that needs a good home? KEYS is looking for a used sewing machine that is of good quality and not in need of repair for a recent single-arrival refugee.

This newcomer is highly skilled with clothing design and construction, tailoring, intricate embroidery, and more. This person already has people interested in buying his creations but he cannot afford to buy a sewing machine at this time.

If you have a spare sewing machine, please consider donating it to this person with a promising future.

Please contact Tarek Elmaghraby <> to help.

Wheelchair, bicycle needed

As of September 7, 2019 we have two new donation requests from other refugee sponsors in Kingston:

First, Wheel Chair (Extra-large size): We are looking for a wheel chair for a newly arrived Lady who arrived on August 29th to Kingston. She is in real need to have this wheel-chair to be able to move around.

Second, an Adult Male Bike:  We have a new Refugee person who arrived recently. He is looking to have a bike to help him move more easily and freely within Kingston.

To donate contact Tarek Elmaghraby at

Many thanks in advance for your continuous and generous support.

Thank you to Youth Buskers!

Not so Amateur Amateurs, led by Christine Harvey, delighted spectators with a busking showcase featuring dance, batons, hoop work, gymnastics, and juggling. They took this opportunity to raise funds for IFRP – almost $400. Thank you to a fun, talented and generous group and their director Christine Harvey.
