We joined members of Green Acres Colony on one of their visits to the Syrian family they sponsored.

What happened when a Hutterite colony decided to sponsor a refugee family? When Paul Waldner and several others from Green Acres Colony signed up for sponsorship in January, a Syrian family of four arrived a month later. Najwa Hussein Al Mohammad and her husband Reyad Alhamoud, along with their two children, do not live on Green Acres Colony, but members from the colony regularly visit the family in Wawanesa. MCC has had, and continues to have, the opportunity to work with all types of different people in Canada through our refugee sponsorship program.
