PROGRESSIVE Intercultural Community Services (PICS) Society said Friday that after two and a half years of struggle, Canada has given legal status to the three orphaned children, Gurpinder Kaur Dhillon, Gurvinder Singh Dhillon, and Inderveer Singh Dhillon, whose mother was killed in the Netherlands.
The three children, accompanied by their maternal grandmother and aunt, visited PICS Society’s head office to share the news with the staff and the CEO that they’ve received legal status and their grandmother has received custody of the children. To commemorate this event, PICS Society presented them with a $2,500 cheque for their further education.
This wasn’t an easy job given the nature of the case and the different legalities between the two countries. However, the grandmother remained persistent to ensure the children remain here with the family. PICS Society said it was pleased to see everyone in the community support the family in this struggle and are hopeful the children will become great citizens of this country.
