Two years following the tragic loss of their three children to a drunk and drugged driver, the Abdallah family say they have been “humbled” and invited to share their story with the Pope.
Danny and Leila Abdallah’s daughters Sienna and Angelina and son Antony were killed alongside their cousin in February 2020.
The grief stricken parents largely credit their faith in being able to move forward following the tragedy, starting the foundation ‘i4give’.
On Saturday, Leila announced via Instagram that she and Danny had been invited to share their story on a global scale.
“Danny and I feel humbled and honoured that our Bishop Antoine Charbel Taraby invited us to attend the WMOF 2022 (World meeting of families 2022) all glory to God always.
“Our mission is to serve the Lord and our children for the rest of our lives.”
“Please pray that we can have i4give on a global platform starting at the Vatican.”
“We thank all our fellow Australians for their love and ongoing support, you have showed Danny and I the true meaning of the Aussie spirit and we are grateful.”
The family have welcomed a baby daughter in March, naming her Selina.
The World Meeting of Families takes place in Rome at the end of June.
