Your gift supports the work of the Refugee Sponsorship Program in Alberta as we assist refugees who have suffered persecution, violence and human rights abuses to resettle in Canada.

We are a group of Edmontonians, women and men of diverse backgrounds, who have been greatly troubled by the plight of desperate families and children fleeing for their lives. We talked about the humanitarian crisis in Syria and discussed it with our friends. They all want to help. Therefore we met on Remembrance Day and committed ourselves to sponsoring a refugee family—a most tangible way to show our common humanity.
To move forward as quickly as possible, we are using the Mennonite Central Committee’s (MCC) services and expertise to achieve our goal. MCC also issues charitable donation receipts for income tax purposes and does not charge any fees, allowing the full amount of a donation to help in the settlement of refugee families.
We invite you and your friends to make a generous donation towards this cause, helping victims of one of the greatest refugee crisis in recent memory.
We will be setting up a Facebook page where we will be posting updates and further information.
