This is a 12 month commitment to support the family financially and emotionally. It is a commitment to be there every step of the way offering our friendship and support as they establish a new life in Canada.
How can we do this? Under Canada’s Private Refugee Sponsorship Program, citizens can join together to sponsor refugee families under a Sponsorship Agreement Holder.
MCC (Mennonite Central Committee) has been working as a Sponsorship Agreement Holder since 1979 to sponsor refugee families who have no prospect of returning home to start a new life in Canada. While we are in no way affiliated with MCC, we can work with them in order to streamline our paperwork and fast track our ability to sponsor a family. Ultimately, this is our top priority.
Through their website we have a fund-raising page where donations can be made directly to our cause with tax receipts issued for each donation. Every dollar that is raised will go directly to the supporting of our sponsored family. There is no overhead or administrative fee.
