The Aylan’s Breath Refugee Sponsorship Project aims to bring a Syrian refugee family to Peterborough in early 2016. Our group of local citizens will take on the responsibility of supporting the family for a year while they adjust to life in Canada, improve their English, and learn how best to share their skills and talents with the larger community. We expect that the cost of supporting our family will be $35,000.
This sponsorship is particularly special because it will bring a refugee family to Peterborough, where they already have relatives who care for them deeply. The family comprises a mother and father and their three children: one boy aged 11, and two girls, 7 and 4 years of age.
