Please consider donating to support the settlement costs of a refugee family from Africa to live in the Erickson/Minnedosa area of Manitoba. As private sponsors, we are responsible for providing both financial and emotional support for the duration of the sponsorship, usually one year. We need your help to welcome this family to Canada.

We anticipate our actual costs to be about $30,000 for our one year of sponsorship commitment, which covers the monthly expenses of housing, utilities, clothing, food, phone and transportations. As we get closer to our family’s arrival in Manitoba, we will also be looking for in-kind donations for furniture, clothing and food to help stock a home for them.

If you are interested in volunteering to help our family adjust to life in Canada, please contact the Steering Committee at
