The president of the Foundation, Paulo Mirpuri went to the hotel in Lisbon where the couple and their four children were staying to ensure everyone was alright and to express his complete readiness to help them on whatever necessary. Also during the visit, Paulo Mirpuri comforted the four children in the family – Thaer, aged twelve; Rama, of ten; Rimas, of four; and Rami, of two – presenting them with toys.In the previous day, the children’s mother had to leave the flight for medical reasons, when their aircraft did a technical stop at Lisbon Airport.
Mirpuri Foundation supported the expenses of the hospital and ensured full board accommodation for all members and covered all the expenses. The family resumed in the next journey to Canada where they seek to build a new life, far from the conflicts that have been occurring in their home country.

The Foundation has been helping in the airlift for those citizens who try to escape the ongoing armed conflicts and persecutions in Syria.
