Zarah Tinholt

Mother, Entrepreneur, Refugee Advocate, Humanitarian

Zarah Tinholt is a mother, an entrepreneur, a refugee advocate, and humanitarian. She is also deeply committed to sustainability and interfaith community endeavours.

In 2015, Zarah's young daughter Addie (who was 7 at the time) wanted to bring a Syrian refugee family to Canada as her birthday wish. Together they helped establish a refugee advocacy group called Refugees Matter, which currently acts as an information portal and bridge between donors, volunteers, organizations, and refugees seeking sponsorship in Canada.
