We have an application in to ISANS to sponsor a family of 4 to be with a sibling family already in Halifax. Thanks to your generous support we will be ready to help them when their paper work is processed.
We will update this site when we know this family is on its way and how you can help. We couldn’t have got this far without you. Thank you from all the Halifriends xx
Who are Halifriends?
Halifriends for Refugees is a group of neighbours and friends who have come together to fundraise so that we can bring a family of refugees to Halifax. We will be providing all material and financial support, as well as orientation, settlement and emotional support, for one year after the refugees’ arrival in Nova Scotia. Your donation will help give a family, who has gone through an unimaginable struggle, the opportunity for a new beginning.
What is Private Refugee Sponsorship?
In private refugee sponsorship, sponsors provide all material and financial support for the refugee, as well as orientation, settlement and emotional support for one year after the refugee’s arrival in Nova Scotia.
Globally we are experiencing the highest number of refugees since World World Two
More than 75% of Syrian refugees are women and children.
