Michael Loebach, an immigration lawyer here in London who has been exceedingly helpful and generous with his time during this crisis, has passed along a request for help.
A Syrian woman, already here in London with her aunts and sisters, wants to bring over her two sons. They are 11 and 20. The older son has a serious injury from a bomb. (Another sibling died in a bombing two months ago.)
The children are presently with their father, the ex-husband, in a camp in Turkey. It is hoped that the ex-husband could also be sponsored – both for his own safety, and so that he can continue to help raise the boys.
Given the very limited number of spots allocated to London’s Sponsorship Agreement Holders, a sponsoring group would need to apply via the Group of Five route. However, with Mr. Loebach’s kind assistance, we are setting up a little “task force” that will help with the paperwork.
