Like many of us, Navor wants nothing more than to provide for his family. That’s why, in 2010, he started coming to Canada—first for five to six months at a time, then for eight.

“I came because I wanted to help my family,” he tells us. “I have a daughter, sister, and mother who all depend on me. In Mexico, I wasn’t able to do that. In Canada, I can.”

But it hasn’t been easy. Not at all. Navor works long hours. He saves up everything he can and counts down the days until he can see his family again. When he first arrived, it was particularly tough. “Learning where everything was, how to get around, and how to ask for help was difficult. I didn’t even know where to start. I didn’t have any community.”

It’s still not easy. I still miss my family … but after everything that has happened, I’m thankful. I’m thankful that Abbotsford Community Services and their Legal Advocacy Program is here to help. And I’m thankful that people care enough to make sure that I can continue providing for my family.

Thank you to everyone who has donated. You have changed my life—and you have changed my family’s life, too.
