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.
We are a group of people - family and friends based out of the English Folk Community in Toronto to sponsor refugees to Canada. This is the second family we are sponsoring! We are working with some of the members of the first group and are welcoming new members to join us to assist with this.
We are sponsoring a family of five who are in precarious circumstances in Lebanon. They cannot return to Syria without great risk, especially since they are Kurdish Syrians from Afreen. Three members of the family have dire medical needs not currently being met. The parents are trying hard to support their family despite both parents having serious medical concerns. The children need to go to a proper school, and live in a more secure home. The two sons are 9 and 5 years old, and the daughter is 8 years old and in urgent need of medical care. This very direct and personal assistance to a family in great need is part of an overall hope to support greater humanity, justice, and peace in the world. We need to raise $32,300 to support them financially in the first year in Canada and to ensure their settlement needs are met as best we can. Thank you so much for your participation in bringing that hope directly to one family.
