Delbert Orr Africa of MOVE 9 needs you!

Delbert Africa is home!
My father, Delbert Orr Africa, was a political prisoner from the MOVE Organization that was wrongfully imprisoned for nearly 42 years. Although he finally got paroled on Saturday, January 18th, he has a lot of ground to cover to get reacclimated back into society. (e.g. health insurance, housing, etc). He's also facing some serious health issues that require immediate treatment. From learning how to use a smartphone to obtaining clothing and furniture for him, there's much to do in order to get him stabilized.

I would greatly appreciate your financial support by donating to my GoFundMe campaign for my Daddy D. 

Delbert Orr Africa is now 73 years old, having been sentenced 30-100 years along with 8 other men and women for a crime none of the Move 9 committed. Please help me get him resettled into his “new” world. Thank you in advance for your consideration!

BACKGROUND:
MOVE is a revolutionary liberation organization that has faced extreme state repression for decades, most notably in 1985 when the City of Philadelphia dropped a bomb on their home. In 1978, a prior altercation led to 9 Black members of MOVE being wrongfully convicted and sentenced to 30-100 years in prison. After 41 years of organizing for their freedom, 5 members of the MOVE 9 were recently released on parole. My dad is one of 2 that had remained in prison, while 2 others previously died in state custody.

Thank you in advance for your support!
