About The BIG WELCOME

In 2016 GIVETOLIVE welcomed a Syrian Refugee family.

GIVETOLIVE’s Syrian Refugee Family arrived!

In November 2016, GIVETOLIVE’s BIG WELCOME team of volunteers said hello to a family of four who arrived from Syria to Halifax! We’re excited to report that our newcomer family is settling into Maritime life very well and are currently focused on developing their English language abilities, exploring all that Halifax has to offer, and of course adjusting to winter in Nova Scotia!

This wouldn’t have been possible without all the support from donors (both financial and in-kind) and many hours of volunteer time to plan for and help this family get settled in their new home. Many thanks to everyone who showed care by offering valuable time, money and much needed furniture and household items.
