Since 2011 approximately 12 million people from Syria have been displaced from their homes. More than 4 million Syrians have taken shelter in neighbouring countries where refugee settlements are overcrowded and underfunded. Syrian refugees in asylum countries are often lacking access to food, water, education, healthcare and employment and conditions are expected to worsen as the conflict continues to displace more people.
The people of Grand Falls-Windsor are embarking on a life-changing adventure as we respond to the Syrian Refugee Crisis. You are invited to be part of the response by helping us fund a refugee family for one year. Our intention is to apply through the Association for New Canadians for a family of four. WE need to raise $17,000.00. This would demostrate our firm intention to look after the family for a year. In addition the family will receive income support from the Government of Canada.
Thank you for your support. Together we can provide hope for this family.
