Welcome packages for Muslim refugees

The Muslim community of Ottawa-Gatineau is preparing welcome packages with religious items for Muslim refugees arriving in the region, to supplement support being provided by private sponsors and the government. It is hoped that these packages will help ease their transition to life in Canada. The packages include a welcome letter from the community in Arabic, French and English (so that sponsors are also aware of what information is being given), along with a map of local mosques, listing of halal shops, an annual prayer timetable, a prayer mat, a Quran, some local community contacts and a gift box of cookies or chocolates.
