Refugee Resettlement Project Update

Rick&Jenn2Refugee Sponsorship
The Katie Luther Room has begun to fill up with household items and furnishings donated by the parish. In addition, we are happy to receive financial contributions, above and beyond normal offerings, to support a family from Burma that we will soon receive into our community. For these contributions, please mark “Burma” on your envelope or cheque.

The family is currently living in a refugee camp in Thailand. The father, 31, mother, 26 and son who is three, need to do a required medical before they can proceed into the next stage of transfer to Canada. Meanwhile, the Refugee Sponsorship Task Team subgroups are hard at work on tasks ranging from finding housing, preparing for health care and investigating learning the new language. Stay tuned for more news as it unfolds.
