Mukwenda Elijah: “Through thick and thin, I was finally accepted and am living happily in Norway.” — A Friends New Underground Railroad Story
Could you believe me if I told you that without the love, care and passion of FNUR to help the fleeing queers from Uganda, I could be dead by now. After being exposed publically for being gay in May/14, I was short of options.
I wanted just to die but having been a client to one organization which was serving queers in my areas, I approached and told them, my life is at danger and immediate risk. This was after my rental house was burnt down by a gang of homophobic thugs.
Yes, am so grateful to FNUR for what they did for me. Through thick and thin, I was finally accepted and am living happily in Norway. The opportunities here are endless but I have to learn the Western culture and also the Norwegian language.
Thanks once again FNUR.
