Get Grenfell Tower victim's parents to the UK

This petition had 107,506 supporters

After the horrific inferno fire that engulfed the residents of Grenfell Tower Mohammad Alhajali passed away by choking to death from the smoke.

I have started this petition on behalf of Omar Alhajali as I am their family friend and would like to reunite them with their family. 

Mohammed al-Haj Ali was trapped inside London flat for two hours after being separated from his brother during the inferno.

His brother Omar was taken to hospital after escaping and remained in contact with Mohammed, who was still trapped inside the flat. 

"The smoke is getting in, the smoke is getting in, we are going to die, we are going to die," were Mohammed's last words to his brother. 

Friends who were close to Mohammed told Middle East Eye that he was in contact with them till 5am. 

Before dying, Ali asked his friends to tell his family in Damascus that he loves them. 

After leaving Syria, he had not seen his family for five years and was forced to limit communication to ensure their safety amid the crackdown against the opposition.

His parents are currently applying for an emergency visa to visit Omar their son in hospital and attend their son Mohammad's funeral. We need to get  their voices heard to the Home Office so that we can persuade an acceptance of the visa.

Please help us collect as many signatures as possible to get them to the UK
