Help keep Christian family from being deported back to the persecution of Nigeria

UPDATE: August 14th, 2019

Watch the CitizenGO interview with Sonya Wierenga, Executive Director of Rose City Kids, a ministry helping 500 at-risk children in the Niagara Region. Sonya is assisting Morufat Ogunkoya and her three children as they seek to remain in Canada. They fled to Canada to escape persecution in Nigeria for their Christian faith, but the Canadian courts have issued a deportation order.

Sonya delivered a plea for the Ogunkoya Family to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in-person today. (Sonya is pictured below with Mr. Trudeau and two of Morufat's children.)

Plea to Justin Trudeau


March 31st, 2019

This family has already been refused permanent residency status and timing is critical.

This is a wonderful Christian family (mother and 3 children) who have fled persecution in Nigera.

The mother, Morufat,  volunteers at various places i.e. The Hope Center - Welland, Holy Trinity Anglican Church - Welland, Ozanam Soup Kitchen - St. Catherines, and St. Vincent de Paul - St. Catherines.

Victor, her son, is involved in Faith Welland youth group and volunteers at Rose City Kids - Welland as a junior leader, St. Kevin's Food Bank - Welland, and Faith Welland kids ministry.

The mother and son both work to support the family. The family have grown very attached to many in our community and they have only weeks to raise awareness and letters of support (petition) before they are deported back to Nigeria to the horrors of persecution and death.

Petition to: Ahmed Hussen

Dear Minister of Immigration,

Please do not deport the Ogunkoya family and grant them permanent residency in Canada.  They are a wonderful family who work to support themselves, volunteer in many places and have positively impacted our community.  These are the kind of people we want in Canada and they will be greatly missed by many here in the Niagara area.  It would be very upsetting if you send them back to Nigeria where their lives will be in great danger.

Thank you for your serious consideration to this matter.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
