Salam and flagOur Syrian family has arrived! Thanks to the generous contributions of our Grace family, our friends at The Anglican Church of the Incarnation in Oakville, and the subsidy of our federal government, Samer, Nidaa and their two children, Salam (2) and Mahmoud (3) are comfortably settled in their fully-furnished, well-stocked two bedroom apartment here in Oakville. While they’ve lived through unimaginable hardships and arrived with only the clothing on their backs, they are all healthy, and demonstrably thrilled to be here and grateful for our help. Grace’s contribution of $10,282.86 so far is going a long way toward helping them afford the basic necessities. With Nidaa delivering twins in August, Samer is anxious to be employed and is hoping to re-certify as an electrician once he has a sufficient grasp of english. Both are eager to become fully-engaged and productive members of our community. Thank you, Grace and all of our friends who have been supporting this sponsorship with time, energy, money and good wishes. Grace, You are amazing! (photo: Salam (father in background) on her way to her new home after a long flight from Lebanon)
