The Group's Purpose

Everyone in Canada (or an ancestor) came hoping for a better life. We can't help every refugee, but can help one family. According to the UN High Commission for Refugees, 51% of refugees are children.

The WRSG has been matched with a Syrian couple with three young daughters, who are in Lebanon. Can you join with us to help them?

The Chimp Foundation transfer funds to other charities, and ours is the Church of the Advent. Donations for the WRSG flow through the Church to fund our humanitarian mission.

The goal shown on Chimp is periodically adjusted to reflect funds received through the Church – see www.wrsg.ca for a more complete picture of progress.
