Also known as “Team Sooke/Juan de Fuca” … a group of Sooke region residents who have formed a refugee sponsorship committee. The committee works under the auspices of St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church and the Catholic Diocese of Victoria, but includes members from the wider community.
Our job as sponsors:
Help a family in desperate need get to Canada.
Pay all the family’s expenses for at least a year.
Guide the family as they learn about life in Canada — from how to take the bus to making friends.
Empower the family so that they can become self-sufficient as soon as possible.
We need community support to do this. We need your support.
Help us raise the $50,000 we need to sponsor a family. 100% tax-deductible.
