The federal government suggests it could cost as much as $40,000 for a family of six to resettle in Canada (Including Airfare).

As sponsors, our role is to provide financial and emotional support during the first year while this family rebuilds their life in Canada. Like most refugee families, this family will arrive at the airport with only a few small and precious belongings. We are raising money to provide the family with the things that most of us take for granted, including housing, heat & electricity, home furnishings, clothing, and food for one year, in addition to costs incurred during the application process (medical exams, flights to Canada).

We have partnered with Grace United Church, a registered charity, to provide you with tax receipts for your generous contributions (Receipts for donations of $25 or more). Please mail cheques to Grace United Church, 581 Howden Street Peterborough, K9J 4B4. (please put “Safe Haven” on the memo line).  As this initiative is driven by volunteers, all proceeds will go directly to support the Alftih family.

And, because we feel that our accomplishment is yours as well, we will keep you updated as the arrival of the family approaches. Please feel free to fill in the CONTACT US form, and you will be added to our e-mail list.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity. And, above all, thank you for believing that we can make a difference.
