Bonjour! Hello! Hola! Friends and family members, As many of you know I am studying abroad in Senegal this semester. I am interning at P.A.R.I which is an organization that aids refugees and immigrants alike. Most come from neighboring African countries, like the Gambia, for fear of persecution because of their sexual orientation. The refugees are displaced from their homes because in countries like the Gambia they are murdered for their homosexuality. They come in search for livelihood, but most come to find that Senegal is by no means an easy place to start over. P.A.R.I is an important actor in helping these people to gain access to health care, education, housing, and much more. I am asking all of you, who are able, to donate what you can to help me reach my goal of $2,000. This is an important cause that gives refugees a chance at a better life they not only need, but deserve. Thank you so much if you read this. Please share and spread the word about this great organization!
