Refugee Settlement

Have you ever wanted to make a difference but thought “What can one person do?”. 

 

In 2015, in response to the huge wave of refugees caused by the war in Syria, Calvary began sponsoring Syrian families to come to Canada.  The settlement of refugees aligns with God’s heart and we’ve seen His abundant provision.  We have made a difference in the lives of 24 refugees…so far!  Please pray for our committee, the refugees we have helped settle and for the safety & provision of refugees across the world.

APHRODITE'S FAMILY

In partnership with Highview Community Church and Central Church, we are currently sponsoring a Syrian family with a Waterloo connection. Despite minimal funds, harassment by Lebanese police and severe restrictions on their movements, this family has established a thriving school in their Lebanon neighbourhood to help Syrian refugee children whose education has been disrupted. Having completed a graduate degree at Wilfrid Laurier University on a scholarship, Aphrodite has established herself locally and has been patiently seeking help to bring her parents and brother to safety in Canada.  Her sister, also the recipient of a scholarship for graduate studies at a Canadian university, is currently living in Western Canada.

OTHER SPONSORSHIPS

Our relationship with the Al Othman family continues today.  We have sponsored Alia, an amazingly resourceful and resilient woman, and 4 of her children & their families.  Her daughter Douaa and her family await the resumption of travel for refugees from Jordan to Canada.
