March 1, 2017 Update

The second Syrian refugee family that we are sponsoring - father, mother and two sons ages 23 and 27 - will be arriving in Montreal soon. The older son will have arrived in late February, with the second son following on March 8. We expect to hear shortly about the arrival date of their
parents. We’ve been in constant touch with the family through email and occasional Skype
meetings. We’re so looking forward to meeting them in person.

We are renting an apartment for them in NDG. It’s bright and sunny, with a view of a park and an Arabic dépanneur on the corner.

Please help us in our continued effort to furnish their home. Please read the instructions and download our needed donations document below. We are in particular need of dressers, lamps,
a coffee table, end tables, and good-quality rugs..
