Resuce parents from unsafe country!

Due to the civil war in Burundi my husband and I made the difficult decision to split up our family.  Although we had a toddler and I was pregnant, my husband was forced to flee the country for his personal safety.  I was able to join him with our sons, five years later, in 2011.  We have worked from the beginning to be valuable memebers of this society and are US, tax paying citizens.  My parents have remained in Burundi and have been subjected to the terrors of the civil war.  Recently, on his way home from church, my father Daniel was arrested.  He was unjustly subjected to the interrogation and tactics of those in power.  These experiences only worsen his current heart condition and cause us to worry for the health and personal safety of both of my parents.   As these conditions persist, we look to resuce my parents Daniel and Marceline from this unsafe country.  In order to start the paperwork for them to join us, there are many fees and requirements.  These funds will be used to help with those fees.  We will have to pay for their petition, the immigration attorney, and other fees related to the process including immunization fees and airplane tickets. Please help if you can!
