Our family is in desperate need of your help! My uncle Jamil Graves needs your help to get out of a crowded Saudi Arabian prison. Two years ago Jamil lost his job as an English teacher due to illness. Losing his job forced Jamil to abandon the home he was living in with his wife and children. In Saudi Arabia laws are different in regards to debts. If you do not pay off any debt that's owed, you can be sentenced to time in prison. On June 25, 2017 Jamil was arrested and taken to prison due to outstanding debt that he owed to the landlord from the home that he abandoned two years ago. He is currently in deplorable conditions! Prison time is served in a one room, dirty, & overpopulated cell with no ventilation. He is a chronic asthmatic and this is very detrimental to his health. A few days ago our family was hit with some devastating news. Jamil has been diagnosed with Colon Cancer and according to his doctor he needs surgery and treatment. We need your help so that we can get him out of prison to get the necessary treatment and back to his wife and children. One of his really good friends Valentino Graves will be collecting all donations to send to his wife Saida M'rabet Khams through the US Embassy. Once she receives the donations at the embassy she will then take the donations directly to the landlord and  he will then be released from the prison. Please consider helping us and remember no amount is too small. We thank you in advance.
