Thanks to everyone who helped bring Syrian family here

The Refugee Committee of the Mill Bay Baptist Fellowship, Mill Bay, would like to thank our community

The Refugee Committee of the Mill Bay Baptist Fellowship, Mill Bay, would like to thank our community for their overwhelming support for the Syrian family, Aisha, Faten and son we are sponsoring.

We would like to thank the Citizen for their coverage of their coming to the Cowichan Valley, members and friends of our church, New Life Baptist, City Gate Church, and the many community citizens who gave generous financial gifts and furnishings for their home. We thank our Family Ministries pastor, Tammy Klassen, for her untiring work on the preparation needed for the family to come to the Valley, Marg and Gord Burdge, for their tireless work in helping settle our family, the Intercultural Society, our interpreter, Jihan, the Duncan United Church sponsorship group, who donated many household items, and those who stored the household furniture until our family could move into their home.

The family are pleased to become a part of our community and feel quite welcomed. Thank you Cowichan Valley. Your continued support of them, as well as other refugees entering our community, will ensure that they will become contributing members of our society as soon as possible.
