Have you heard about Pictou County Safe Harbour?
Pictou County Safe Harbour (PCSH) is a community-based refugee sponsorship group that was founded in 2015 in response to the Syrian Refugee Crisis. PCSH began with the sponsorship of one family from Syria in 2016, but in the years since, PCSH has remained an active sponsorship group and has welcomed nearly 50 individuals to the community from both Syria + the Democratic Republic of the Congo. These newcomers have become vital citizens within our community - working as teachers, nursing aids, construction workers and restaurant owners.
Our goal this year and going into the future is to build communities, sponsoring family members of the families that we have already sponsored. We invite you to join us in raising funds to reunite families, families that have been separated by war and conflict.
