Your donation can help make an enormous difference a refugee families’ life.

We estimate we will need approximately $130,000 to support two Syrian families (nine individuals) for the required one-year sponsorship periods. This represents the minimum needed for shelter, food, clothing, and transportation. At the end of 2016, we had raised over $90,000 for our first family, and we have set a goal to raise $40,000 in 2017 for our second family.  Stretch goals beyond $130,000 include funding for education and vocational training, and continued support beyond the first year. Think of it as giving the gift of Canada.
