Although the Inter-Church Refugee Partnership is raising funds to resettle an at risk Syrian Refugee Family, one of the mandates of the partnership is to support refugees where they are. If this is an aspect of the refugee situation you would like to support from now until December 31, 2015 the Canadian Government is matching Funds (up to 100 million dollars) donated to Canadian Charities that are responding to the humanitarian crisis as a result of the conflict in Syria.
Our partner as the Refugee Sponsorship Agreement Holder, Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR) is one such organization you can donate to and have your dollars matched. You can donate online or write a cheque out to any Lutheran church in Canada, marking it CLWR-Syrian Refugee Relief. Cheques made out to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church can be dropped off at any of our partnership churches.
