Claude is a gay man from Uganda and is trying to gain refuge in the UK. He was beaten to the point of needing surgery because of his sexuality, and his family refuses to have any contact with him. As an asylum seeker he is not entitled to any government help or education. I am currently helping him to learn English but am unable to support him on any financial basis. The donations that are raised will enable Claude and others in similar situations to remain in the UK and avoid the persecution they would receive by returning to their home country.
