Luel sees his Family

So Luel or as some may know him, Simon, has not been back to Africa to see his family since his move to the United States.  He's been talking about visiting his family for the last few years now but has never been able to make it work.  So let us make it easier for him and cover his travel expenses so he can see his family again!

Traveling to Africa is not cheap and this is the biggest hurdle for Simon to get there.  These donations will be used to cover his travel back and anything over the goal will benefit South Sudan or help Simon bring his Brother or Sister (or both) with him (they also have not been back).

There is no timetable for this.  Just hoping to get the funds in place and then surprise him (seriously this is a surprise, please do not tell him!).

We all know Luel and know that this couldn't go to a more deserving person.  The guy never complains about not having seen his family in so many years but I know this will mean so much to him that he has such a great circle of friends that can help fund his way to seeing his home and his family.  Any amount helps and is greatly appreciated!

As Luel would say, "As-Salaam-Alaikum."
