PEC Syria Funds – Settlement Fund

Over the past five years, PEC Syria has sponsored many refugee families who were forced to leave Syria, and helped to bring them to Prince Edward County and the surrounding area. Typically support has been offered for the first year or two of their resettlement in Canada. Some sponsored families have been delayed in their journey due to the political and economic situations in the countries they fled to, such as Lebanon and Jordan. Their situation is very precarious and dire, with shelter and food security threatened. Some of these funds will be directed toward supporting their food, shelter and medical needs while they wait for final travel documents. Any balance of funds received will be directed to their support when they arrive or to the PEC Syria Funds – Education Fund to support post-secondary education once they arrive.
