More families arrive in Canada - the Village is growing!
We are so happy to share with you that four survivors in our program left Greece and arrived in Canada last Thursday! The three individuals and one family were met at the airport by two survivors who have already resettled and members of their ally groups who will accompany and support them as they start to build new lives in Canada.
So far, 15 survivors and their families - a total of 41 people - have resettled in Canada through Lamp Lifeboat Ladder.
We received some more wonderful news on Valentine’s Day that we won another case, and another survivor in our program will be traveling to Canada next week! ❤
Help us aid refugees who have survived torture and trauma to discover a new life by supporting their relocation to Canada.
