February 2019 - Hoping their daughter can come!

We are very hopeful that the family's oldest daughter, who was separated from them when they had to flee their country, will be able to be reunited with them here in Victoria. Because of this we have followed CRA's recommendation of adding an extra $8000 to our fund-raising goal for an additional family member, bringing our goal up from $53,000 to $61,000 (CAD).
