The Ukrainian Family Support team has successfully helped the family secure an apartment! The lease has been signed and through your generous donations furniture, kitchen utensils, etc. are ready for the moving day. If you are able to help please contact the Parish Office via email at firstname.lastname@example.org . The expected move in date is next week, the week of July 4th.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
Ukrainian Family Update
With endorsement of Parish Council Christ Church is supporting two families who have fled the war in Ukraine and have sought protection in Canada. We have agreed to support these families for one year.
Our first family of five has been supported since of 2022 and are settled in an apartment and the children are in schools. This family was identified through the a member of the parish. The father is working full time. However the rent for this apartment is beyond the financial capacity of the family after the Church’s support is ended. Any leads members of the congregation might have on an affordable apartment would be welcome.
A second family of three was identified from posts on the Atlantic Canadians host Ukrainians Facebook group. They were met at the airport after their flight from Poland on October 31. One of the members of your Ukrainian support committee has provided room in her home from their arrival until they were moved into their apartment on December 29. Christ Church will provide support for their rent for year. We have insufficient funds to support the family for the whole year so are soliciting contributions to this ministry again.
The Ukrainian support committee would like to thank everyone who has contributed to supporting the ministry.
