Re-unite Zahra with her parents

My friend Zahra* is a refugee. 

Zahra had to flee from her home country when she was 19. She is now 25 and hasn’t seen her parents for more than 5 years. Her parents are now both unwell and she is afraid that if she doesn’t see them soon she may not ever see them again. 

She is allowed to travel to a third country to meet her parents. She’s planning to travel to the closest country for her parents to get to as they’re getting too unwell to travel far. 

We have calculated that Zahra will need $5,330 to make this trip. This amount includes covering her rent and bills while she’s away for 3 weeks as Centrelink will not pay her while she’s out of the country. 

Seeing her parents again means the world to Zahra, it’s all she thinks about day and night. It would mean so much to  Zahra, and to her mental well-being, if she could manage to make this trip. She's hoping to travel in March, depending upon how much money she can raise. 

Please help to make this a reality if you possibly can. If you're not in a position to help financially, please share to others.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
