We’re very happy to announce that after long last, we have been matched with a refugee family! We confirmed our commitment earlier this month with AURA to resettle a family of 4, mother, father and two young children, in Toronto. They are Syrian refugees, currently seeking refuge in Malaysia. They will arrive sometime between mid-November and early January.
This is a Blended Visa Office/Referred (BVOR) case, which means the government provides some level of financial support for 6 months, which is great. Although we still have some funds remaining from our last campaign that began in 2015, we will need some additional money to help this new family through its first year in Toronto. If you are in a position to help us, please click the CanadaHelps button on the right side of this page.
As more news becomes available, we will post it here on the murp.ca web site. In the meantime, our group will have lots of work to do in preparing for the family’s arrival!
