Refugee Sponsorship Update – January 28, 2016

Things are moving along rapidly for the Sultan Family.    They have now been here just over three weeks.

On Friday, January 22, they found an apartment and will be moving into it on February 1.  Both boys are now enrolled in school – the younger started on January 18 and the older has to wait until a new semester begins on February 1.  Both boys are also enrolled in soccer programs.  Husin, the father, was offered a scholarship for beginners ESL at the Stewart College of Languages and started that program on January 25.

Last Sunday we transferred items we had collected at our Thrift Shop to Oak Bay United so they could choose furniture and household necessities.
