Call for volunteers with LGBTQ+ Syrian refugees

Dear London, Newcomer LGBTQ+ Community and Supporters,

As many of us know the Federal Government of Canada made an announcement on November 24, 2015, about the plan to bring in the first phase of Syrian refugees, up to 10000 by the end of this year. Those who identify themselves as LGBTQ+ will be included among the Syrian refugees accepted into Canada.

I’m compiling a list in case we have a large influx of LGBTQ+ Syrian refugees, and wonder if any of you are able to help us out, and in which capacity.
