We are currently in the midst of the greatest refugee crisis since the end of World War II.

Over the past few weeks, many of us in Rotary have asked how we, as a club, with friends, loved ones and other area Rotary Clubs can help families who have had to flee their homes in Syria. Twelve million people have been displaced as a result of the civil war there, many of them children.

Our club has an opportunity to play a part in assisting some of these unfortunate refugees in partnership with other Rotary clubs and Christ Church Cathedral.

Our objective is to bring a Syrian refugee family to Ottawa as quickly as possible.

Additional refugees may be sponsored as funding permits.

If you can, please help our cause by making a donation.
