À propos de cet organisme

In 2012, the St. Dunstan’s Basilica Parish refugee committee committed to sponsoring the Nuur family to immigrate to Canada. Over the past five years, committee members have been working tirelessly to raise funds to cover sponsorship expenses for the 13 family members, and provide much-needed post-arrival settlement assistance and friendship. As of August 2017, they have joined the family in celebrating the arrival of ten relatives. They are now waiting for the last sibling to arrive: 27-year old Ruan, and her children: two-year old Hodan and one-year old Mohamed. When they arrive in Canada, it will mark the end of years of homelessness and separation for the Nuur family.
