While Islamic Relief has been on the ground in Syria since 2011, our branch in Canada, the largest Muslim international development charity in the country, is also providing domestic assistance to incoming refugees in Canada. Our Refugee Resettlement Campaign, launched in 2015, supports community and settlement organisations across Canada to help refugees and has mobilized over 300 volunteers to secure services such as transportation, translation, housing, and employment. The programme has supported the arrival of over 500 Syrian refugee families.”
