Letter: GoFundMe set up for Ryleigh

Young girl has loving family members ready to receive her and give her a stable home in Shawnigan

GoFundMe set up for Ryleigh

Thank you for the informative article outlining the challenges faced by the Pyne-Mercier family and their struggles to bring Ryleigh, their orphaned great niece to Canada from South Africa.

My opinion: while Ryleigh has a living parent, he has has voluntarily relinquished his parental rights, thus leaving Ryleigh an orphan. This young girl has loving family members ready to receive her and give her a stable home in Shawnigan — let’s make that happen!

Anyone wishing to offer financial support towards this struggle can do so at https://www.gofundme.com/f/RyleighsJourneytoCanada

Professional support would be beneficial in securing Ryleigh’s future in Canada as well as support she may require when upon arrival.
