Refugee barrister fees

After living in limbo in SA for over 5 years,  our dear friend has been declined a protection visa and is facing deportation.   For him, deportation means certain torture and being locked up with no chance of freedom. We are supporting him to appeal this decision but need help with paying for his legal fees.  Many friends have already chipped in financially but we still need more.  He is only in his 20s and such generous, sweet man.  He has learnt English,  has a job,  is part of a church and gives back to the community that has offered him a second chance.  We appreciate any donation,  small or large.  We need $7500 to pay the barrister to take the case to court.  Every little bit helps!! Thank you. Update: Thanks for all of your generous support!!! The deposit of $2500 has been paid. The next payment of $2500 is due in about February, with the final payment of $2500 due when it is taken to court approximately in 1 year (August).
