Refugees sponsored in part by a local church group should arrive in a few weeks. They are a “young Syrian couple: Hamza and Sohair. Both are professionals, one in IT and the other in agricultural research”, according to Michael Kooiman.
Edna Harding, a long-time Westonian, is one of the prime movers in this laudable achievement. The first effort to sponsor refugees fell through early this year, when the group lost contact with the mother-child pair.
