Refugee Sponsorship Program

Refugee Family Arrives

We are very happy to report that the Syrian refugee family the First Unitarian Church of Victoria is sponsoring, Fatemah, Mohammad, and their son Abdulrahman, arrived in Victoria in October 2021.  A wonderful reunion took place at the airport when they came together with the parents’ son, daughter-in-law and two young grandchildren.  Wasan and young Mohammad brought flowers for their grandparents who met them with smiles, hugs and some tears of joy.  Four FUCV members carrying a welcome banner joined in the celebrations.

The family is now settled in their apartment which was furnished and organized by a hard working and generous group of Unitarians who have received many thanks from the family and the appreciation of the FUCV Refugee Committee.  Fatemah disclosed that she loves plants and was delighted to see a potted variety in her living room.

As the family moves into 2022 and their fourth month in Canada, they are studying ESL and working hard to settle into their community.

A warm welcome from the Unitarians of Victoria !
