Today we are announcing that we will be supporting the Barho Family for our spring quarter. Our hearts are broken after the tragedy of the Spryfield house fire. This is an unimaginable and tragic loss of 7 children, and we hope that we can assist them in this very difficult time of grief. Please help us support the Barho Family, and show them that we are here for them as a community.
Seven kids, aged between three months and 14 years, died in the fire early Tuesday - Ahmad, Rola, Riya, Mohamad, Ola, Hala, Rana, Abdullah. The children’s father, Ebraheim Barho, remains in critical condition.
The scale of the tragedy for the young Syrian family who arrived in Nova Scotia in September 2017 as refugees has struck a chord with Canadians.
Family friends of the victims, the Imam Council of Halifax, and the Hants East Assisting Refugees Team (HEART) Society initiated the GoFundMe crowd-funding drive for the Barho family, according to the website.
People in Spryfield are still struggling to come to terms with the fire that claimed the lives of seven children last week.
The community is united by tragedy and determined to remain strong as they are doing everything they can to support the grieving parents.
