A few years ago we left Burundi because of war and persecution and many conflicts . We stayed in Rwanda since 2015. My father died when I was young, and his mother went to Congo I never seen her . Since my father died i grew up with my aunt. She was killed by rebels in 1997. I was with her, and i remember that she told me to run.
As you might know, the situation in Burundi has been quite tense since 2015, when the country was thrown out in a political crisis. I experienced that many of my friends were killed, and others disappeared when we decided to leave Burundi. I, and at least 400.000 others has fled since then, and I do not feel safe to go back. My wife, was severely tortured in 2015, and afterwards the torturers tried to find Me to kill me. Together we ran to Rwanda, but there we were to be attacked . We decided to continue running as we were very afraid .My wife was pregnant at the time, and I and her decided to leave Rwanda. We came to Kenya in 2017, and are still living there. In January 2018 I was attacked by a man I think was from Burundi or Rwanda. I managed to escape, but we don’t feel safe. My wife is struggling with PTSD and depression after what she has been through, and need psychiatric treatment.
22nd of April, just a few weeks ago, our beautiful baby girl, Janyce, was born. We are so happy and in love with her - but we worry about the future. We want to raise our daughter under safe circumstances, and the plan is to try resettling in Canada . The forms we received from the Canadian embassy estimates in our settlement plan that we will need 26.200 usd to get started. In addition to that we will need plane tickets. Janyce is suffering many times she is hospital
I really hope that you will join me in helping my family to create a better future for ourselves. Any and every amount is helpful! Thank you so much
