Happy New Year to All! And especially we wish all the blessings of a bright new year to our Syrian family, Mohamad, Mariam, Tasneem and Khalil. The family are in Vancouver right now, having spent the holiday with family, and spending some time exploring their options as they launch into a new life in Canada. They have been gracious and grateful for all the effort our volunteers have put in to help them acclimatize in this new land. But in the end, they will do what they need to do to ensure a secure and prosperous future for their family. We’ll keep you posted.
