For over a year, a young Syrian family in a refugee camp in Jordan has been waiting and hoping for refugee resettlement. This week our Syrian Refugee Initiative learned that our sponsorship application for this family with a young Dad and Mom and four children aged eight and under has been approved. During the next few weeks all the necessary medical checkups and documents for the family will be submitted to the VISA office in Amman, Jordan for processing. And now we are waiting.
The next meeting for the Syrian Refugee Initiative is from 7 – 9 p.m. on Tues. Feb. 16 at Deer Park United Church. Everyone is welcome.

 Items needed for our Syrian family: Bunk beds, Dining/kitchen table and chairs, Carpets, Area Rugs, and hall runners, Crib & baby room furnishings, Child car seat and booster seat, TV
