North Pointe is working to bring a young couple from Damascus, Syria to Edmonton. R and his wife M are both 31 years old. In 2012 they fled Syria and have found refuge with Jordanian Christians. They cannot return to Syria and they cannot stay in Jordan.
Our commitment to R and M is to secure for them housing, furniture, food, clothing, settlement support, transportation, education, access to training, and ESL. Most importantly, to provide a Christian community and friendship at this stage of their journey.
It may take up to 9 months from April 17th for the resettlement process to be approved and completed. In the meantime, please pray for them, think about how you can be supportive financially and with the donation of materials and finances.
