Crystal Beach Lakeview Refugee Task Force DONATIONS
Organized by: CBL Refugee Task Force
OPEN FOR DONATIONS!
April 06, 2016
The Crystal Beach Lakeview Refugee Task Force (a new community based group in Ottawa Ontario) was formed after meeting a young family in our neighbourhood looking for assistance to help free their other family members from dangers overseas in Syria & Lebanon. We have formed a “Group of 5” and we are seeking your support to reach our goal of $18,000 to sponsor the first of two groups of family members. The sooner we raise these funds, the sooner we can start to unite this family. Please don’t wait.
Family Group #1: 5 people. A sister and her family that includes her husband, two daughters (9 and 5 years old ), and an Uncle.
Family Group #2: 4 people. A brother and his family that includes his wife, two sons (20 and 21 years old).
Our first priority is Family Group #1. Once we have successfully raised funds to assist them, we will try to sponsor Family Group #2. According to the government, the cost to sponsor Family Group #1 is estimated at $29,0000 . However, our local Syrian family has room in their Ottawa home for Family Group # 1 and our community group plans to provide lots of in kind support, reducing the sponsorship need to $18 000 for one year.
The estimate cost to sponsor Family Group #2 will be $27 000 for one year with without any secured in-kind support for housing.
A generous will help us achieve our goals. Please give generously so we can unite this family in Canada to start new lives in the safety of our fine country. A community celebration with our new neighbours will take place soon after our goal is met – you will be invited!
