Benefit concert in Canada for Syrian-Armenian Refugees

Canadians all over the country, including Niagara, are stepping forward with offers of assistance and questioning what more they can do to help.

The Syrian refugees who have started to Canada and it is expected that hundreds of additional people will resettle in the Niagara region over the coming months, making this area their new home.

Given that many of the refugees are from a Syrian-Armenian background, the Syrian-Armenian Refugee Committee (SARC), led by the Armenian Community Centre, is working with the Niagara Refugee Assistance Committee to help with the arrival, settlement and building of positive relationships for the new families settling within the community.

The Centre has privately sponsored 8 families and are in the process of welcoming additional families in the near future.

With this in mind, the Armenian Community Centre of St.Catharines is  hosting a benefit concert on March 12 featuring local bands, with all proceeds going towards the newly settled families, according to Niagara At Large.
