We want to extend a profound thank you (shukraan!) to everyone who donated clothing, furniture, and household goods to the family. They have now moved in to the house and are overjoyed at the beautiful new home we all helped put together for them.
We were overwhelmed by the immense generosity of the people in our community. In only two weeks we completely gathered an entire household of goods for 5 people from **donations alone**
If you have items that you would like to donate to a refugee family resettling in Victoria, there are many other sponsorship groups with families arriving over the next several months who would love to take your donations. You can contact the Anglican Diocese of BC and/or the ICA to connect with these groups. You can also see the following website for contact information for specific groups. https://refugeesforvi.wordpress.com/sponsorship-groups/
