2017 Syrian Refugee Holiday Fun Event

Settlement ISC Daily Life

On Saturday, December 16, Immigrant Services Calgary (ISC) was host to 96 Syrian Refugees (including 59 children) for a Family Holiday Fun Event. We had an excellent 93.5% turnout engaging in info-sessions, fun games, and food.

We conducted workshops that included topics on positive thinking & job search for men’s group as well as ‘Starting a day home’ for women’s group, which was well appreciated. Youth enjoyed activities such as bracelet making, cookie decorating and board games, while children had storytelling and toys for entertainment.

“Thank you so much for the invitation and the amazing and beautiful gifts. You are very thoughtful indeed. Have a great holiday.” One of our guest’s feedback to ISC.

We thank all who attended the event and made it a success.
