Vandalized Syrian Family
This Syrian man shared with EMCN that he was re-traumatised by this experience. It took him back to the two instances he was kidnapped and beaten in Lebanon while living as a refugee from Syria. He said he came to Canada in search of safety, and now he does not feel safe at all. They had saved for this car, and now feel defeated in starting over yet again.
As a supportive community, we would like to fundraise $3,000.00 not just to replace their car, but to also show our unconditional support and to rebuild their sense of safety. We invite you to join our community effort to send a powerful message of support to this Syrian family.
Please note: This is not an EMCN fundraiser, but a few staff members at EMCN are collaborating on this fundraiser outside of the organisation. Tax receipts will not be issued.
Once our goal is reached, the funds will be withdrawn in my name but will be immediately transferred via e-transfer to this family and then we will help them find a car so that they can get back on their feet again.
