Meet the Godeychuk family, who has found a Safe Haven in Canada.

With the unwavering support of our donors and the exceptional work of our partner, Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) Canada, we brought a glimmer of hope to the Godeychuk family, who were forced to flee the war in Ukraine. They found safety and refuge in Canada, and we are grateful for the opportunity to be part of their journey.

Fleeing the strife in their homeland, the Godeychuk family embarked on a journey to Canada, escaping the horrors of war with the help of your generous donations and the partnership of Miles4Migrants and JRS Canada. Now, nestled in the promise of a new beginning, the Godeychuk family is not just safe but also filled with excitement for the opportunities in their newfound home.

Mykola Godeychuk, the family’s patriarch, expressed his gratitude, saying, “We want to start a new life here. Thanks to everybody who helped us with tickets. This support is really important for us, and I think for everyone who wants to come to Canada.” His words echo the sentiments of countless refugees who have found hope and solace through the support of compassionate individuals and organizations.

This heartwarming story is just one among many, made possible by the generous contributions of our donors. Miles4Migrants, with the support of its dedicated partners like JRS Canada, has facilitated the escape and resettlement of thousands of Ukrainian refugees, providing them with a chance to rebuild their lives away from the ravages of war.

The impact of these efforts reaches far beyond borders. It is a testament to the collective strength of humanity, demonstrating that when people unite for a common cause, lives can be transformed, and futures can be rebuilt.

How Miles4Migrants helps

We collaborate with a network of global non-governmental organization (NGO) partners who work directly with refugees and migrants to identify and verify individuals who are financially unable to afford air travel. Once our partners submit flight requests, we use donated frequent flyer miles, credit card points, travel vouchers, and cash to eliminate transportation barriers for the most vulnerable individuals affected by war, persecution, or climate disaster. Our goal is to help these individuals reunite with their loved ones and start a new life in a safe environment.

Support our work

– According to the United Nations, there are currently 108 million individuals forcibly displaced from their homes worldwide.  

– The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that seeking asylum is a fundamental human right. Everyone has the right to life and liberty. Everyone has the right to freedom from fear. Everyone has the right to seek asylum from persecution.

As migration is often the last option for survival, migrants may embark on clandestine journeys, subject to danger, extortion, and inhumane conditions

Once they finally get legal approval for resettlement, migrants face another challenge that makes the journey seem impossible: the transportation costs.

There are many ways for you to get involved and help us continue our work:

You can donate cash to help us cover operational expenses or contribute your unused air miles, credit card points, or travel vouchers to help us book flights for refugees and asylum seekers. Additionally, you can help us spread the word about our cause and our impact on the lives of those we serve.
