The ordeal facing #KQFamily, the family of Canadian permanent resident Khaled Al-Qazzaz, continues. Following Khaled’s release, his Canadian wife, Sarah Attia and their 4 children Abdelrahman, 9, Amena, 7, Fatema, 5, and Tahrir, 3 travelled to Egypt eagerly looking forward to being reunited and to bring him home. The family planned to return to Toronto two weeks later in mid-April in order to access the immediate medical attention Khaled requires, and for the family’s life to return back to normal. Months later and they remain unable to exit the country to return home to Canada.
The family needs to return to Canada for immediate medical treatment and the children need to be back in time for school!
The Friends of #KQFamily have launched a new campaign to urge the Canadian government to intervene and make sure that the entire family is home in time for the start of the new school year. The children - Abulrahman, Amena, Fatema and Tahrir, have missed school for long enough. Khaled's medical situation also persists. Below is a list of our #Home4School iniaitives:
