Canadians for Syria is working with the Islamic Foundation of Toronto, a government-recognized Sponsorship Agreement Holder (SAH) organization which will act as a co-sponsor of the Syrian refugee family.
The Foundation has extensive experience with the cause, and resettled over 200 Syrian refugee families in 2016.
These families now live throughout Ontario and are enjoying life in Canada.
During the Ride for Refugees, we worked with the Islamic Foundation to decide which Syrian refugee family we should sponsor. Upon this decision being made, the Beshmaf family is currently working through the final stages of their refugee resettlement process and are on their way to Canada. Stay tuned for more details!
