The application package for Lama and her four children, Syrians in a refugee camp in Lebanon, was mailed to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada just before Christmas.
In the new year, Mary will also put together an application package for the family's grandparents. Including the grandparents will cost an additional $10,000 to the original fundraising goal of $40,000, making the new goal $50,000. We have already raised more than $25,000 and will likely have a year or so to fundraise the remaining money.
If you wish to donate, please make cheques payable to St. Philip's and write "Refugee Fund" on the envelope as well as on the memo line. For more information please contact Mary Lymburner, 778-898-5117 or [email protected]
