Help give these orphans a second chance at life

Hi my name is Kulsum, I live in Toronto, Canada. Recently, my little cousins back home in Saudi Arabia, Riyadh have lost both parents in the span of 8 months. Their mother 8 months ago due to a heart attack and father as of today (March 23rd, 2019) with a heart attack. This couple, my uncle and aunt were the most kind-hearted, down to earth souls, that I have ever heard to be known. Though life gave them many difficulties and with the very little they had they were incredibly grateful. It is a sincere tragedy that they have left their eight little children behind. The eight of them were born and raised in Riyadh and never left. As a result of their parents being of Indian descent they will be sent back to India where there is no family to take care of them hence leaving these children abandoned in Riyadh alone and scared with no means of hope or direction to what is going to happen next.

They have no home, no money, no parents, just each other. We are grateful that a family friend has temporarily taken them underneath their shelter, they are currently living at this distant family friend’s house but they also cannot be held there for much longer as it is hard for that family to supply for eight children as well. (We of-course are very thankful to have them there for them at this time). However, when other ideas were brought up many people have brutally turned a cold shoulder towards these innocent souls. Since these kids are also all under age there is a possibility of their movement to an orphanage center where all of the kids would likely get separated which I personally cannot bear the thought of after all they’ve been through.

Our family’s goal is to sponsor them all and while the process is quite expensive we would like to reach out to anybody who would like to help these poor young kids and make sure we can give them a home here with us where they can feel loved and belonged as they truly are.

After going through so much we just want them all to be together, to be happy and to have a stress-free life as any child's life should be.

These are the only reliable and safe sources for these children, please if you have any more questions please only use those given. Thank you
