    Refugee Committee Update

    On December 15th, Hisham, his wife Nour and their baby Anna arrived in Canada! (See their photo on the Committee page - click here). Since their arrival, Ottawa has gone through some of the coldest weather in recent memory; as a result, they struggled with a bout of illness almost immediately after their arrival. Nevertheless, Anna is in good health and Hisham and Nour are thriving. Our second family, Alaa and Manal, have recently received word that their application is approved and completed, all that remains is to process their departure from Lebanon and they will be joining us in the near future.
