Help Debbie & Mike rebuild

Mike & Debbie Africa have been political prisoners since Aug 8, 1978. On Jun 16 after 39 years and 10 months, Debbie was released, and on October 22, after more than 40 years in prison, Mike was released.

They have two kids together (one that was literally born in prison as Debbie was 8 months pregnant at the time of her arrest) and despite not being able to see or talk to each other for 40 years, they have stayed together. The picture above is first time they've touched or seen each other since they were in their 20s.

They had their life stolen from them for a crime they did not commit. and anything helps as they work to rebuild the life they had taken from them so very long ago.
