Mirpuri Foundation helped a Syrian refugee family of six that, for health reasons, was forced to interrupt their journey to Canada.
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.
Mirpuri Foundation has been helping the Government of Canada, which is receiving more than 25,000 Syrian refugees, providing them with the security and protection that they can’t find in their homeland. The Foundation has been helping in the airlift for those citizens who try to escape the ongoing armed conflicts and persecutions in Syria.
