1 Yr Sponsorship Complete
August 24, 2017

Hello, This will be the last update regarding the Jafo's as we are pleased to announce that the 1 year sponsorship of the Jafo's is now complete See More

THE STORY:

Dear friends,

We are so excited to tell you about the journey we are on as a family - and we are asking for your help and support. Like many of you, our hearts have been pulled and challenged as we've watched the crisis in Syria. Millions of people are fleeing, literally for their lives, from their war torn country, abandoning all they have in search of a new home.

We were put in contact with one such family and we have committed to help them come to Kelowna, Canada. After working through the local Sponsorship Agreement Holders forms in the BC interior to have them properly processed by the Government, we wait for word from the government of Canada to let us know when they are coming. Upon arrival, we have committed to helping them establish themselves over the next year. This looks like finding them housing, doctors, licences, jobs, daycare and hopefully a community and a place to call home.

To do this we need to raise $30,000 to cover their living expenses for the first year as they become independent. If this cause is close to your heart we encourage you to donate below. Everything counts and even small donations from many people add up quickly!

We will also need any help you feel willing to offer. Simple things - like driving them to ESL lessons, work or doctors appointments will fill up our days quickly.

If you would like to join us in this effort and be a part of their journey please contact us at leeanna.cordes@gmail.com.

Please note - anyone who wishes to receive a tax receipt for a large donation can contact LeeAnna directly at leeanna.cordes@gmail.com so another donation avenue can be discussed. 

Sincerely,

David and Geri Pauls
