South Osborne Syrian Refugee Initiative

Help us sponsor Syrian families by donating today

The South Osborne Syrian Refugee Initiative is a group of over 200 concerned residents and supporters, mainly from the Riverview and Lord Roberts neighbourhoods of Winnipeg in partnership with Churchill Park United Church. We are sponsoring three Syrian refugee families, related to a family already living in Winnipeg, to settle in our community.
