Help us welcome a refugee family to Canada.
The war in Syria has triggered a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions. Like many, we were moved to act by the very visible suffering of our fellow human beings who were simply searching for a safer place to call home. We are grateful for the expanded admission targets that have been set by our new government, and for the many families and individuals who have stepped forward to help.
When we started to look into the possibility of sponsoring a family, our eyes were opened to the thousands of refugees of many nations who have been waiting for sponsorship for years and are at risk of being forgotten. That's why we have chosen to help a Congolese family who have been living in the Nyarugusu refugee camp in Tanzania for more than 15 years.
We don't know the beginning of their tale, nor how it ends. But we do know you can help them write the next chapter...
