Support needed

The Refugee Support Group – Ottawa is a group of individuals who gathered to support a Syrian refugee family of three for resettlement in Canada.

The Group’s Purpose

We are sponsoring a family of three to come to Canada to begin a new life. 

Due to the conflict, the Syrian family — a mother, a 17-year-old daughter, and a 29-year-old son — has fled their home in a Damascus suburb in 2013, when the house was destroyed by an airstrike. Currently, the mother and daughter are living in Abu Dhabi, UAE, while the son lives in Malaysia. All family members have no legal status in their current country of asylum. At this point, the Syrian family is left separated, struggling daily to rebuild the life they left behind in Syria. 

We identified this family through their friend, who has been living in Canada since 1995. 

Sponsorship for resettlement in Ottawa would mean the opportunity to reunite the family, as well as hope for a better future.
