On September 23rd, our Syrian family of 7 arrived in Vancouver at long last! They were welcomed by members of the 7 church Refugee Committee and settled in their new home in Burnaby. Ahmad and Lamis, along with their children Dana, Hala, Ghena, Shaza and Sana are adjusting well - the girls are in school, and the parents are starting English classes. Thank you to all who have made this new start possible.
We are now eagerly awaiting the arrival of our Tibetan family of 3, who are also expected this Fall.
Thank you to all who have so generously donated money, time and goods. The best way at the moment to continue to support our efforts is through a cash donation, which can be made online through this website (see 'Giving'). All funds go directly to support and welcome our new friends.
