Stop 3 US Citizens, children, from being sent to Zimbabwe


Prevent the 3 US Curle kids from being sent to Zimbabwe, Africa.

We need your help to stop this injustice.  

The parents of these children were missionaries in Zimbabwe.  All three children are U.S. Citizens.   The father resides in Zimbabwe but is a Candadian citizen who is not allowed to enter the U.S.A. because of visa violations.  

A judge determined that the habitual residence of these children is Zimbabwe.  They have lived in the U.S.A. with their mother since 2009 and are enrolled in school.  This recent decision means they must return and reside in Zimbabwe pending adjudication of the case.  

Harare, where the children will reside, has been plauged with disease and social unrest.  Typhoid and cholera run rampant and over 80% of the residents have HIV.   The judge refused to consider the saftey of the children in this decision.  

Please help us protect the rights and safety of these young U.S. citizens.  Unless you help, they will have to leave the country on April 20, 2012.
