The situation in Afghanistan for thousands of families remains dire. However, Maple Grove United, Munn’s United, Knox Presbyterian, Glen Abbey United and St. John’s United churches and a group of concerned local individuals are making excellent progress in their fundraising efforts to bring three of these families to Canada.
At a meeting at Maple Grove United Church last week representatives from the churches and neighbourhood groups learned first hand about the peril these families are in from relatives already in Canada. The stories shared were motivating and will help to provide the group with the energy to remain committed to the cause. The meeting was also an opportunity for the group to get to meet each other and learn who they will be working with to sponsor and settle the families.
This holiday season please consider helping this group help others in desperate need.
