The Refugee Resettlement Committee of KUC (part of Global’s umbrella) is very excited to announce that we are committed to sponsoring 2 young men from Iran in the near future.
The paperwork is nearly complete and ready to be submitted to CIC (Citizenship & Immigration Canada). We work in a group called R.A.F.T. (Refugees and Friends Together) with folk from St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Presbyterian Church, and we welcome participants from other churches or the wider community.
We will be seeking your support as we prepare to receive these men. We will need household items, furniture, etc. At present, if you can contribute something, please advise either Lynda at 250-578-7419 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Martha at 778-471-7631 or email: email@example.com
The biggest priority is increasing the number of folk interested in helping to receive and settle the men. If you are interested in a rewarding experience and are open and friendly please contact either Lynda or Martha. No special experience required other than friendliness.
We also will be searching to find a 1 bedroom apartment or basement suite where they can live. Their income will be extremely limited and cost will be a major factor. If you have any suggestions, please contact Lynda or Martha. The anticipated arrival could be as soon as toward the end of May but we won’t have a firm date for some time yet.
