The aunt Syrian boy whose lifeless body was photographed on a beach in the Mediterranean indicated that Canadian government officials had invited to complete another refugee demand for a brother and his family.
Tima Kurdi’s request to allow the entry of his brother Mohammed and his family in Canada was rejected because the necessary documents had not all been provided.
Ms. Kurdi said an employee of Citizenship and Immigration Canada had contacted her last week and she asked again make application to Mohammed.
She added that the government no longer demanded a UN Document difficult to obtain and that was necessary to meet Canada’s standards for refugee status.
However, Ms. Kurdi said that these changes came too late to save the woman and the two children of his other brother, Abdullah, who drowned while trying to cross the dangerous waters between Turkey and Greece.
“We are still wounded by the tragedy and guilt for not saving his family,” said Ms. Kurdi Thursday.
“It’s good to bring the family with me here, but there will always be a part of our hearts whose wounds remain bright.”
Abdullah would have paid about $ 5,800 to smugglers for the trip fateful – money sent by her sister from Canada.
The tragic picture of the late son of Abdullah, Alan, has shocked the international community and drew attention to the crisis of migrants, a topic that was also found in the heart of the federal election campaign in Canada.
Pictured broadcast in September, we could see the little boy with the face in the sand, wearing blue trousers and a red gaminet.
The opposition parties then put pressure on Prime Minister Stephen Harper to expedite the process of welcoming refugees.
During the election campaign, the Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said that Canada should accommodate 25,000 Syrian refugees by the end of the year, a promise Tima Kurdi hope Mr. Trudeau respect.
She would also like Mr. Trudeau is involved in the admission process of Abdullah.
“I think that Abdullah is a special case and needs help,” she said.
According to reports from the United Nations refugee agency, about 650 000 people tried to cross the Mediterranean this year and more than 3,000 of them are dead or missing. The majority are people who have fled Syria.
Ms. Kurdi said she had visited the Middle East last week to visit Abdullah, who is based in Erbil, Iraq.
She mentioned that her brother was at the idea of coming to Canada, he had initially rejected after the death of his family.
Ms. Kurdi added that her brother planned to create a charity named for his son with the goal of helping other refugee children.
