I am writing with another case of a local who hopes to sponsor her family, but lacks the financial resources.
Ms Ganya Al-Zuhairi has written to me about her family. Her mother (52), brother (26) and sister (25) are Iraqis who sought asylum in Syrian in 2010. They did so because they are Mandaens (a Semitic group which venerates some of the figures of Christian Bible, especially John the Baptist), and were persecuted by the Muslim majority.
The three remain in Syria, and are registered with the UNHRC.
If you can provide any kind of assistance, including just information about where they should turn next, please contact Ms Al-Zuhairi at: <email@example.com>.
