We are the Gordon Head Refugee Sponsorship Constituents Group (GHRSCG), a secular group organized under the umbrella of the Parish of Saint Dunstan’s in Victoria, BC. Our goal is to provide sponsorship to refugee families coming to Victoria, BC.
We have successfully sponsored a family of six and a family of three, both from Syria. In 2019 we received approval to sponsor a third family, anticipated to arrive in late 2021.
