November 26, 2015: Syrian Refugee Sponsorship;
No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.

Most of us have by now seen sad images of a 3 year old boy on a beach in Turkey – sad, harsh images not easily forgotten. And while some of our Honourable Members rail about the existence of dreadful bogey men and what the government must and must not do, ordinary Canadians are busy dealing with the realities at hand.

Concerned residents from all Kitchissippi neighbourhoods are collaborating with organizations from across the city in response to the needs of Syrian refugees. Listed below, are some of our neighbourhood organizations with which people of conscience can get involved to help.
