Syrian Refugee Family Reunited, Thanks to Generosity of Regina Family in Mourning

The family of Jeremy Campbell, a Regina man who died in Japan, helped raise money to reunite a Syrian family torn apart by war. 

As a tribute to Jeremy, his family "chanelled their grief into generosity" by rasing funds to help bring the remaining members of the Alkhatib family to Canada, from the refugee camp in Jordan. 

The CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) covered the story. You can read the article and see pictures of their arrival and of Jeremy and his family here:
