Ruth writes: We’ve been hearing of small groups of concerned citizens getting together to help sponsor a refugee family. If you are thinking about it, you might start by consulting an organization called Lifeline Syria (https://lifelinesyria.ca/sponsor/). The Anglican United Refugee Alliance, or AURE is a church organization with experience in bringing refugees to Canada. Its website is: http://www.auraforrefugees.org/.
CBC Radio’s Metro Morning has had two recent interviews with Torontonians who are working with neighbours to sponsor Syrian families. You might find these helpful.
