We are a group of concerned citizens who would like to offer a new life to one or more refugee families so that they may find safety and make a new home in our beautiful and prosperous country.

The money raised will be used to give the refugees somewhere to live and what to eat during their first year in their new country.

Among other things, the money will be spent to provide food, clothing, local transportation costs and other basic necessities of life as well as somewhere to live, heating and electricity, basic furniture, and other household essentials as well.

Please contribute and help rescue a family!

Although the crisis in Syria is the current media focus, there is no guarantee it will be a Syrian family. It will be a refugee family or families whose lives are endangered and are in desperate circumstances and it could be from various regions. In addition to Syria, current refugee crises include South Sudan, the Central African Republic, and Iraq.
