Sponsorship of a Syrian Refugee Family

Check out the latest update on the Alsahar family, the Syrian family in Lebanon being sponsored by the Shalom Group (representing our shul plus ORH and Adath Shalom). The situation really hasn’t changed: the family and all the volunteers and donors in Ottawa who have been involved so far continue to wait for the Government of Canada to process the family’s file…..but we have finally received some encouraging news. In February, the Alsahar family heard from Canadian visa officers in Beirut. The family has had their interviews and medical exams and are waiting to receive their security clearance. While the wait can still be several months, volunteer team leaders are meeting at KBI March 21 to start preparing for the family’s hoped-for arrival. Stay tuned….
