Thanks to the incredible generosity of the Comox Valley, Safehaven Refugee Sponsorship Group has achieved our financial budget for the Syrian family of 7 we are sponsoring. Well done Comox Valley, well done. We are now turning our focus to the settlement plan for this family and we will be calling for assistance (volunteers, household items, services and supports) in the future. Our family may still be up to 8-12 months from arriving but we continue to plan. In the mean time, if you have a heart for the refugee crisis, you can financially support any number of other groups in the Comox Valley who are still fundraising for other families in crisis such as the Kurdish-Iraqi Sponsorship Group from St. Peter's Church in Comox.
