Sponsoring Eritrean Refugees from the Blended VOR Project
I work at the Refugee Sponsorship Training Program on a project called the Blended Visa Office-Referred Initiative. This program aims to resettle specific refugee populations to Canada. One group that will be resettled through this project is Eritrean refugees in Sudan. There are now 40 Eritrean refugees waiting to be matched with sponsors in Canada through this program. I would like to reach out to the Eritrean community so I can provide information on the project and how they can get involved. I will be holding a webinar for this purpose and would like to invite all members of the Eritrean community and anyone interested in sponsoring Eritrean refugees to attend the session. Please find additional details below:
The Blended VOR Project
This webinar will focus on private refugee sponsorship of Eritrean refugees, residing in Sudan, through the Blended Visa Office-Referred (VOR) Initiative, a new program designed to resettle specific refugee populations identified by the UN Refugee Agency and referred to sponsoring groups by Canadian visa offices abroad. The aim of the webinar is to reach out to members of the Eritrean community and those interested in sponsoring Eritrean refugees by highlighting the many profiles currently available for sponsorship. Through this session you will gain an understanding of the Blended VOR sponsorship process and learn how you can help Eritrean families in Eastern Sudan waiting to be matched with sponsors in Canada. Speakers are Felisa Ponce and Yosief Araya of the RSTP. This session is open to the public.
