We are a group of caring individuals from Toronto, concentrated in the Bloorcourt area (Bloor/Ossington) who are working together to bring a Syrian refugee family to Toronto. Our group is made up of roughly 20 people of diverse cultural, professional, and faith backgrounds:

Two of our group members work in professional fundraising; one is a financial planner; two members are pastors, another is doing a masters in psychotherapy; one group member has volunteered with Romero house, and another with Matthew house. Two members are Arabic speakers. We have one medical doctor, one naturopathic doctor, one mental health nurse, and one occupational therapist who works at CAMH. We have four teachers on our team, and 5 of us are music industry professionals. One of our group members leads an organization called Faith in the City, which was responsible for the “My Community Is United” Event held at our local Islamic Center in early December.

While we come from different backgrounds, perspectives, and work places, we are all connected by the desire to help with the Syrian refugee crisis.

Please consider helping us make a difference in the lives of refugees who have been through so much, and give them hope for a better life in Canada. Your donation will help provide housing, food, clothing and other essentials of daily life.
