The family is desperate to be reunited and fear for his safety. We have applied through the Anglican Diocese and the United Nations to get him here. Please help. This is such a nice family and they are torn apart inside wanting to be together. Thank you.
who we are:
We are a registered sponsorship group with the Anglican Diocese in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
relationship with Syrian boy: Mary Gidney heads the sponsorship group. Joan Foster is fundraising and the money will be accounted for by Mary, with receipts for tax receipts if required.
How the money will be spent: All money raised will be turned over to the diocese in an account for the benefit of this sponsored young man to be with his family in Canada. The accounting is strictly observed with the rules of the Canadian government and is reviewed by the diocese frequently. There is an audit of our records. We expect the money to be put toward his living expenses: food, board and clothing, English lessons and transportation by bus. Money raised will be used to pay transfer fees as required by GoFundMe and the money will be withdrawn with the approval of Mary Gidney through a separate account held by Joan Foster in trust for the Anglican Diocese for Refugee Sponsors, and then controlled by the Anglican Diocese who will carry out strict oversight of disbursement of money.
