What an amazing outpouring of support from our community - both financial and otherwise!
We have now received $133,000 to help us sponsor at least three Syrian refugee families!!
As yet, we’ve had no success in obtaining a family through the government assisted program, so our group is now exploring the possibility of private sponsorship arrangements. We are trying hard to practice patience as we learn more about the complexities involved in sponsoring Syrian families.
Speaking of patience, we have had such a positive response from potential volunteers that we have had to create a waiting list of sorts, for those who have contacted us most recently. We hope to get back to everyone soon, and your continued patience is greatly appreciated. Meanwhile, we are delighted that 45 people who were sent volunteer forms, have completed them and are ready to contribute! If you haven’t yet filled in your form, please do so asap and send it back to our volunteer coordinator.
