Let’s work together to help refugees

"The Syrian Refugee plight is much on my mind and in my heart."

The Syrian Refugee plight is much on my mind and in my heart.

I am proud Canada has pledged to rescue 25,000. I hope our West Kootenay communities will respond as we did for the Hungarians and Vietnamese. We are fortunate to already have a local organization in place to facilitate the process: The West Kootenay Friends of Refugees website is a mine of useful information.

If every community in Canada took in one family, our national quota would be met. It only takes a Village…how about the Village of Warfield?

An immigrant myself, I am interested in working with others to bring a family into ours. Reach me at vclover@shaw.ca.

Let’s do it!
