Help Samer+Razan Be Reunited

Young couple Samer and Razan have been engaged since 2013. Both from Homs, in Syria's east, Samer worked building roads up until the fighting began.

Samer's family lost their house in June 2015 when a bomb went off and, like much of Homs, was totally destroyed. They fled to Lebanon whilst Razan's family fled to a safer part of Syria. The war has forced them to  be separated since.

In July 2016 Samer, his parents and his brothers family were given asylum to start a new life in Australia. He has been working non stop to be reunited with his fiancé and had received many set backs, tearful phone calls and closed doors until only recently receiving the wonderful news that she has been granted a visa.

His dream is to get married and have big family. He is currently learning English at TAFE and is living in Merrylands with his extended family. He loves Australia calling it the 'best country.'

Samer has now received a 25 day visa to collect his bride, marry in a simple ceremony in Lebanon and bring her to her new home. 

After years of living as refugees his families resources have been depleted and he needs to raise the shortfall of $3000 to secure flights by August 24th.

We have been helping Samer's family (and many others) with food and clothes to make the transition to Australia easier. We have watched Samer's depression and heartbreak turn to joy when he showed us Razan's visa approval letter. We have personally contributed to this goal and are happy to answer any questions. All monies will go directly to flights to reunite them.

Whatever help or support you could give to help these two be reunited to tie the knot would be so appreciated.
