Support for Palestinians resettling in Cobourg

Support for Palestinians resettling in Cobourg

We have connected with Eman Alatbash, an NCC client who is living in Cobourg.

Since the conflict started in Gaza, Eman has been trying to get her family to safety. She is sponsoring 25 family members to resettle in Canada. Unfortunately, one of her sisters is still in Rafah. 

Her friends have set up this fundraiser as they have taken on heavy financial responsibilities:

Eman is also collecting household items and furniture.

Our staff will support Eman’s family with settling once they are here in Canada. In the meantime, we are also running a collection drive for Eman to collect essential items to house her family members.
