Sponsor a Syrian family to Jasper

The Al Homosh Family

Omar, his wife Rola, and their three young sons aged 13, 11, and 8, fled Syria for Egypt in June of 2012 to escape the bombing happening near their home in Damascus.
 Omar is an engineer and Rola is an art teacher.  Omar left his family in Cairo to work in Iraq, but due to visa complications in April of this year, he has not been able to return to his family. They remain separated.
 We are working to reunite this upstanding family here in Canada, and need your help. 

Our goal is to provide them with the opportunity to live a life with their children that is free of war and fear.

Our commitment

All of the funds raised through this effort will go directly to the family. Donations will support initial  relocation costs including food, housing, and clothing needs.  
 Our goal is to raise enough through the generousity of friends, family, and beyond that the Al Homosh family can settle in comfort as they begin their new lives as Canadians.
 So far, support from the local community has been overwhelming.  Donations of clothing, household items and toys are already coming in. Outreach services and support networks are in place.

Please SHARE this message with all of your social media platforms. The dedicated Jasper Facebook page is updated regularly with news about the effort and can be found here. Bring Syrian Family to Jasper
