Refugee Sponsorship Committee
On January 31st, Emmaus Anglican Church voted to sponsor a Syrian refugee family. Currently, the Refugee Sponsorship Team is fundraising and processing documents with the Quebec and Canadian governments to sponsor a Syrian family of six people who are currently living in Beirut, Lebanon. The Refugee Sponsorship Team is working with Oasis, a Christian outreach ministry, which works with Syrian refugees in Lebanon, to successfully sponsor this family.
In conformity with the Quebec and Canadian governments recommendations, Emmaus needs to raise at least $50 000. This money will cover one year’s worth of living expenses, including rent, food, clothing, transportation, utilities, medical needs, etc. Any money raised beyond the basic needs of the family of six will be used to benefit other Syrian refugee-related initiatives.
