Our second sponsored Syrian family has arrived!
Welcome to the Collingwood Syrian Family Sponsorship Fund
08.11.2017 – The Collingwood Syrian Family Sponsorship Committee is pleased to announce that the second of our sponsored Syrian families has settled in nicely.
The Diyab family arrived from Lebanon in September to join the four other Syrian families who have recently re-located here, All of the newcomers to Collingwood are are very supportive in helping each other. Support from the whole community has been nothing short of astounding in assisting these families locate schools and connecting them with housing and employment opportunities. Committee financial assistance draws to a close at the end of one year. Government financial aid expired after just six months. All of our newcomers are gratefully thriving as families, friends and neighbours, and in safety, in Collingwood.
Our Syrian Sponsorship Committee has access to many resources that have helped reduce some of the above costs and at this time we are not in need of further donations of household furnishings.
