Saving a Refugee Family
The Islamic Society of Kingston has partnered up with Perth Road United Church to save a refugee family that is struggling to survive in Lebanon. The family left their home in Syria and are living from shelter to shelter in Lebanon. The father has no work, food and water are scarce and the children are not attending school. It will cost $35,000 to bring the AlJalem family to Canada, money that will also help the family with various living expenses for their first year in the country.
The initiative is almost at the halfway point, and organizers are asking for your help.
