Sponsor a Refugee Family progress report #3


By late April, applications for the refugee family of 5 was completed and submitted by A.R.M. (Action Réfugiés Montréal) to Immigration Québec (MIDI). On May 27 MIDI informed A.R.M. that approval was given and that the files were passed on to Canada Immigration (C.I.C.) for processing. We hope the process can be expedited quickly and now patiently await their reply.


Our financial appeal from our 2 churches and community has been outstanding. We have reached $38,135. A total funding of $46,000 would be required.

 Can we raise $7,865? This extra funding is for medical needs.

 We invite you to contribute as generously as you are able.  


Large household furnishings to donate would be appreciated:  2 single beds, 2 bedroom chest of draws, dining table and chairs

Storage : We are very limited in what we can store. Please continue to store your donations until the family arrives.

Please contact Hui-Cha Cho 270-4870 / Johanne Schumann 388-2484

           for household donations.
