Hello. My name is David McNab and I am fundraising for my friend Rashid. He is currently living in a dangerous situation, having fled Syria as a refugee when he was a child. He has been surviving on his own and somehow managing to feed himself after he lost contact with his family. I have been helping him learn English and I have been very impressed with his work ethic, his character, and his wonderful personality. He is very deserving of an opportunity to live safely and free. He has a dream to study and become an engineer. I know that Rashid would be a wonderful Canadian citizen. Even though he was initially bullied online, he has not lost faith in Canadians. It is my hope to bring him here and welcome him into my family. Between my own contribution and the contributions of friends, I am more than halfway to the goal of $18,000 that is required to sponsor a young man. I need to raise 8000 more to make Rashid’s dream come true.
I have considerable experience with the refugee process, as well as fantastic guidance from very skilled people. It is our goal that Rashid will have a job and will be supporting himself within a year of arriving in Canada.
Please help me provide Rashid with this chance.
