Shiva is a 31-year-old woman who has been suffering from colon cancer for the past two years.
A few years ago, an elderly woman who retired in Toronto went to the United States to live with her daughter, so she told the pension agency he was leaving and his salary was naturally cut. After a few years when her daughter's condition worsened, they returned to Canada just before the corona outbreak to seek treatment for their daughter here. They rented an apartment in Toronto because of its proximity to the hospital. After a while, due to the high cost of their daughter's medicine, their savings were almost exhausted and they were introduced to us by a dear friend in our city.
Kamran, along with his wife and six-year old son, are among those who arrived in Canada shortly before Covid-19. The Immigration Office was closed just as they entered into immigration process for getting asylum status. They could only go on a few weeks with what they had until were finally introduced to us by Ms. Niaz Salimi. What they needed immediately was food. In this campaign, a large number of our compatriots immediately provided wide range of Food, PPE and Toys, along with several grocery gift cards (such as Walmart, etc.) and some money.
This campaign was set up to assist a family who lost their child.
Delaram was a 13-year-old girl who died of cancer two days after arriving in Canada.
Today, the campaign is set-up for aiding his family which is provided by the assistance of 40 donors. Although money may not help their mental state, we wish for them to heal over time and the funds was collected for them to start their lives from scratch as newcomers and one day, determine their own future according to their own wishes.
Canada welcomed a large number of Syrians involved in the war of the summer of 2016.
We wanted to help them and we decided to set up a large garage sale for them.
The Parya Foundation agreed to provide us with the large parking along with the tables and umbrella. In this huge sale, a large number of Iranians residing in Canada participated and helped sell their equipment to help buy the necessary supplies needed for the refugees to start their lives here. The campaign was also sponsored by all Iranian media outlets in Toronto.
