Jean-Claude arrived in Canada in 2001, and was finally accepted (on humanitarian grounds) in March 2007.  He is still waiting to be reunited with his wife and two young children who remain in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Three years after Jean-Claude was accepted in Canada, in April 2010, the Nairobi office finally began processing his family’s applications.  The office decided that the family must undergo DNA testing.  This means further delays.
