Afghan interpreter all poised to land in Canada on Friday
James Akam, who is currently in a refugee camp in Germany, would locate his spouse and son in Kabul, where they are said to be in hiding, a Canadian newspaper reported.
“My wife and son are everything to me. It’s why I left for Germany. My dream was to go there and get to Canada and bring them over later,” he told the Toronto Sun.
But while he has served with the Canadian troops as an interpreter, the one thing he has not experienced is life in Canada.
The 29-year-old is set to arrive from Frankfurt in Canada on Friday. His visa allows him to come to his dream destination along with his wife and son.
