Emanu-El sponsored Syrian refugees arriving

Monday, August 15

This is
it!  We have just been informed that the
family we are sponsoring is “good to go”.

In
fact, they have had a tentative travel date of August 15 for a couple of weeks,
but after the failed coup attempt in Turkey, we had no idea if they’d get the
last piece of required paperwork: an Exit Permit.

And today
we found out they have it! They arrive in Victoria next Monday, August 15.

Our
sponsorship group is busy determining what we need to do immediately. We’ll be
in touch with donors as we assess what kind of additional supplies etc. are
needed. 

Most
important of all, we are pleased to have found rental accommodation for the
family – a tremendous relief as the rental market in Victoria is incredibly
tight. 

Thanks
to everyone who has supported this endeavour!
