Cheticamp and Pleasant Bay prepare for new Syrian families

    Over four years ago, Lifeline 224 started the process of sponsoring a Syrian refuge family for resettlement in Cheticamp, Cape Breton.
    Lifeline 224 is a collection of local people, businesses, organizations, and churches who assist St. Andrews United Church in Pleasant Bay with the refugees’ sponsorship.
    Our mission is to advocate for the sponsorship of refugees to Canada and our goal is to reach out to everyone interested in lending a helping hand with the resettlement of these newcomers to the area and to advocate and educate in order to become a welcoming community for newcomers.
    “The end result is a win-win: a new home for refugees that need a safe place to live and young families for an aging community,” says Lifeline 224 chair, Howard MacKay.
