SPRIG (Saanich Peninsula Refugee Initiative Group) was started in Deep Cove as a meeting discussing the refugee crisis in Syria and how families needed help immediately. A lot has changed since the initial discussion where we recognized this needed to be a community endeavour – thanks to everyone who has come forward since then to lend a helping hand, a welcoming voice, and financial backing.
