We met with Sister Ruth Hennessey and Aspa Bouzinelos of Casa Maria Refugee Homes. They have brought over 80 families to Peterborough. This organization started when the Boat People started to arrive in the 1980’s.
They helped us immensely with the processes that need to be followed and the finer points of bringing refugees to Peterborough.
At the end of these meetings, we decided to form a “Constituency Group” to bring a Syrian Refugee Family to Peterborough.
