Syrian Refugee Crisis Update for Residents of London, Ontario:
Over the last couple of days, I heard informally about some numbers. Just by the end of the New Year, London is expecting 141 refugees.
So far I know about 75 private sponsorships of families ongoing, plus 20 government-sponsored ones.
To think that when we began to work on this in late Summer, we were hoping to settle 10 families here. We’ll bring at least ten times that!
