Juliana is the two-year old girl that, together with her mother, was saved from the earthquake debris 3 days after it happened.
Unfortunately her mother Paula died from blood poisoning shortly after being saved, leaving Juliana and her 2 other children with her brother Stanley. Juliana needs medical care urgently, but wont be able to receive that in Haiti.
That's why Stanley and his sister (who is an official resident in Canada) decide to apply for a visa for Canada. All Haitian papers are in order, but getting a visa for Canada is more difficult then expected. The Canadian embassy in Port-au-Prince is also ruined by the earthquake, and Stanley is advised to travel to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
We have started a petition to offer to our Ministery of External Affairs. The more people sign the petition, the more pressure we can may be put on them to pursuade the Canadian officials to provide the right recidency papers, in time.
But we also offer this petition directly to the Canadian embassy. Who knows it might help.
Please help Juliana, sign the petition and forward it to everyone you know!
