Syrian Refugee Crisis Update for Residents of London, Ontario:
The number of sponsorships of refugees from the Syrian crisis continues to grow. Anne Marie Madziak writes with the following description of her group’s efforts:
We are a group of seven friends in London Ontario. Like many around the world, we have been deeply moved by the plight of the millions of refugees risking their lives in the pursuit of safety and a life free of violence. Recognizing our own lives of comfort and privilege, we felt compelled to do something! We gathered as a group and decided to sponsor a Syrian family of five. We named the group Artemis after the Greek goddess known for her strength and her courageous protection of the vulnerable. We eagerly await our new neighbours and are very grateful for any support you can offer! Thank you!
