We are a group of Sooke region residents who are sponsoring a Sudanese refugee family to come to Canada.

They are a family of two parents and their three children under 12. They fled their home country due to religious and ethnic persecution. Our sponsorship is the only chance this family has to rebuild their lives in a safe and welcoming community.

We are a group of Sooke region residents who are sponsoring a Sudanese refugee family to come to Canada.

They are a family of two parents and their three children under 12. They fled their home country due to religious and ethnic persecution. Our sponsorship is the only chance this family has to rebuild their lives in a safe and welcoming community.

The family has been accepted to Canada, and we are now waiting for final paperwork to be completed. We don't know how long this will take, but they could arrive as soon as September 2019.

Our job as sponsors:

  • Help them through the application process to come to Canada.
  • Pay all the family's expenses for twelve months.
  • Be their friends as they learn about life in Canada.
  • Support them in their efforts to become self-sufficient as soon as possible.

Please help us raise the funds we need to give this family a good start in Canada. 

Refugees do not create a heavy demand on health care.
