May 12, 2018 –
Maria Alejandra comes to us from her native Columbia. Two years ago, she worked very hard to get a legal visa to come to this country through a sponsored program offered by the canadian government.
The reason Maria came here is the same reason that most people come here from 3rd world countries, to get a better life. During her stay here, the family who was supposed to host her and take care of her, mistreated her, and when she finally found a 2nd host family, they too misused her, and her services.
The only way to ensure that Maria did not have to be deported back to her native Columbia in March of this year was to find a loving Sponsor family, and to pay all legal costs ($4,000) to do the proper paperwork to keep her in Canada.
Maria has volunteered her time in our own Community during her 2 year stay here as well as supported her Community back home in Columbia by sending money every month as well as clothes and food.
As Maria did not have the funds herself to pay these legal costs to stay in this country, we want to support the legal bills that had to be paid so that she has the opportunity to live in this wonderful country and finally get her landed immigrant papers after all the hard work she has put in to create a better life for herself and the people that she is supporting back home.
Maria continues to be of service and I would l love for this Community to show their love in supporting Maria in any way they can.
We will be honouring Maria as the Angel Network recipient at our upcoming Spiritual and Wellness Marketplace being held here in Burlington on Saturday May 12th. We would love to see you there and support Maria by bidding on services/products and merchandise being offered by our exhibitors. All $$ will go directly to paying the legal costs associated with keeping Maria in this country.
If you are not able to come on May 12th, but you would still like to support Maria's cause, please contact us directly and we would be happy to accept cash/E-transfers/cheques/credit cards etc.
Thank you so much for your support.
