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.
