Help bring a Refugee Family to Canada
Please help us bring this family of 4 from the Republic of Nauru to Canada, for safe resettlement.
The Refugee Family
*Zahra (30 years), *Zain (19 years) and their parents fled Iran seeking safety, due to fear of persecution based on religious and political beliefs, and sexual orientation. Zahra experienced imprisonment for going against the rules of the regime, which included wearing western clothing. Her bisexual orientation and same sex relationship, which is punishable by law, made her a target for persecution. Zahra and Zain’s mother spoke out against the regime and was lashed 40 times. The family are Christian, and they are not allowed to openly express or practice their religion in Iran. Their family faced threats from the Iranian authorities and religious police.
