New BVOR fully funded sponsorship

We need your help. With nearly 26 million refugees world wide. It is clear that the world refugee crisis is dire and help is needed. With the generous assistance of The University of Ottawa Refugee Hub, the Shapiro Foundation and Jewish Family Services Ottawa, a new temporary fund has been created to facilitate the sponsorship of 1000 refugees through the Blended Visa Office Referred Program (BVOR). The fund will cover the cost of the sponsorship (6 months) while the federal government will cover the remaining 6 months. We are looking for groups of 5 or more individuals in the community who can commit to helping refugees in need. The refugees on the BVOR list are travel ready and are likely to arrive in Canada by December 31st 2018.

We’ve been given a close deadline of September 17th,2018  for groups to express interest. Sponsoring a refugee is one of the most compassionate acts of service there is. We hope you will consider this opportunity. Please e-mail if you are interested.
