Trip for (2) Sable Island(Helicopter & Guided Tour)

This whole story started over 12 years ago when I was in Afghanistan.  I was stationed in Spin Boldak, Afghanistan.  There I meet “Mr Jones”.  Mr Jones and I quickly developed an excellent working relationship.  He was my interpreter.  Through thick and thin he was always ready to do his best.  It was never a question that he wasn’t putting out 110% effort.  After my tour ended I came home.  Married.  Had children.  But Afghanistan was still ongoing both as a world issue and in my head.  I was diagnosed with PTSD and Major Depression a few years later.  My military career ended.  I was not capable of making life and death decisions anymore.  I was a broken soldier.

In 2017 I assisted with getting Mr Jones his Canadian citizenship.  All was slowly coming together.  He moved to Toronto and started his new life.  Within a short time he was diagnosed with PTSD himself.  It was a tough road to travel.  

In 2021 he returned to Afghanistan to take care of his mother.  While there taking care of her he was married to a lovely young lady.  Here enters Mrs Jones.  Sadly, his mother passed away, and concurrently the Taliban had re-taken Afghanistan and they were stuck in Kabul and unable to return to Canada.  

Mr Jones has a wife, who is 6 months pregnant, and 2 brothers and two sisters.  Those brothers and sisters are married to their husbands/wives.  Each family has 4-6 children of their own.  In this one extended family there are a total of 34 souls.

My goal is to save those 34 souls, and bring them safely to Canada.
