SYRIAN REFUGEE PROJECT
To date, RUC and friends have raised $44,539.78. Together with New Vision United Church of Canada in Hamilton, ON, we have met and surpassed our goal - enough to bring a Syrian Refugee family of 5, known to New Vision, to Hamilton ON.

Syrian Refugee Project (SRP) Update
The Syrian refugee family were invited by phone to come to the International Organization for Migration Medical Center in Ankara, Turkey on Feb. 24 for repeat medical examinations and were also asked to send IDs for the whole family in order to obtain the travel loans they require to come to Canada.
This would seem to signal that their migration processes are beginning. New Vision United Church of Canada has not had any word directly from the embassy yet, though.
The official word is that the IRCC notifies sponsors 4-10 weeks ahead of when the family will travel. It's a wide window, but we're very grateful there is some movement! Further news is that the parents are vaccinated and are expected another child in July.
Pray that nothing goes awry.
