WE ARE HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE THAT OUR SPONSORED REFUGEE FAMILY HAS SAFELY ARRIVED IN LONDON.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR THE FAMILY AND THEIR SMOOTH LIFE TRANSITION.
THE REFUGEE COMMITTEE OF THE LONDON PRESBYTERY ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE AL MUTALEB FAMILY HAS ARRIVED IN LONDON.
This Syrian family includes 2 parents and 4 children under 9 years of age. Thanks to a generous Presbyterian in east London, the family will initially be living in a house there, until alternate arrangements can be made. The refugee committee’s first priorities are transporting the family from the airport to London, helping them settle into our climate and beginning to learn some English, as well as addressing immediate health concerns. In the coming weeks, the committee will be aiding the family as the children begin school, and the parents learn about everything from our money system to bus routes to employment opportunities. The committee is grateful for the many Presbyterians who have supported this initiative. Donations continue to be accepted through Oakridge Presbyterian Church. Those wishing to help the family with gift cards may consider cards to Shoppers Drug Mart, Loblaws (for use at No Frills), or Food Basics. Thanks be to God!
