Your gift supports the work of the Refugee Resettlement Program in Ontario as we assist refugees who have suffered persecution, violence and human rights abuses to resettle in Canada.
The Lake Front Refugee Project was formed by a group of local Toronto friends to help support one new family coming to Canada. The family we are welcoming to Toronto is originally from Democratic Republic of Congo but had been displaced to Uganda. It is a young couple, with a 5-year-old girl and 1-year-old boy. Obviously it will be a considerable challenge for this family to adjust to a new life here in Canada. They will need not only financial support but also practical support to help navigate the challenges of getting settled in a new home. We would like to help make a tangible difference in the lives of this family, and we are reaching out to ask for your help and support. Our goal is to raise $5740. With your support I know we can do it. Thank you!
