The refugee families pictured here are now building new lives in Canada because of sponsorships.

United Churches in Guelph and other faith partners are currently sponsoring a single man who arrived in Guelph in August 2019. A small group is offering hands on, frequent support to him.

How you can help:

  • We need volunteers for a bigger group that will help fundraise and fill requests for outings, transport, social and emotional support as they arise.
  • Can you make a financial gift?  We have funds to support part of our year long commitment, but we must raise an additional $8,000.  
  • Can you contribute the costs for a week ($110), a month ($500), or more? If you have been blessed with the means to bless others, your support will help us respond to this sponsorship opportunity and future refugee needs.  You can donate through your own congregation; please contact the people below for details.

  • We don’t need donations of furniture, clothing or household goods at this point, but we will let you know if that changes.
