Scribendi Donates Computers to Help Syrian Refugees Learn English
Scribendi has donated 11 computers to St. George Roman Catholic Church in London, Ontario, which is working with the London Cross Cultural Learner Centre to support over 400 families from Syria who have recently settled in London.
The computers will be used by 12 of these families to study English online and for daily tasks such as managing finances and checking bus schedules. Many of these newcomers did not know any English upon arrival in Canada, and access to online tools will be invaluable for continued language learning.
Mary-Catherine Bishop, Pastoral Minister of St. George Roman Catholic Parish, noted the significance of the donation, saying, "I am so grateful to you and your team for helping make a difference in the lives of these displaced families. I can assure you on their behalf that they will be so thankful for the support."
Bishop also works with the London Muslim Mosque and the Southwestern Islamic Centre to support newcomers to Canada and help them make the transition to life in London.
Scribendi is so glad to have been able to support St. George Roman Catholic Church and the Cross Cultural Learner Centre through the donation of these computers and to help these families as they continue to learn English and build their lives here in Canada.
