Feed & send Abdoulie to school

Hi everyone, this fundraiser is for my friend Abdoulie, an 18-year old boy taking care of his many siblings in Gambia.  They are the definition of the saying "starving kids in Africa" sadly.  He and his siblings are houseless, parentless, and have been relying on me to send food money weekly. He was kicked out of his landlord's compound for not being able to afford rent AND lost his grandma to disease 2 weeks after we met. His life is a constant struggle to survive and provide for what's left of his family. I befriended him on Instagram and have talked to him often on WhatsApp since. I have received more than enough evidence to prove that he is just a poor boy relying on the kindness of strangers to live. This is the sad reality of our world. Without social media, I would have never known about him. He is a truly kind and incredibly loving young man who expresses nothing but affection towards everyone & everything. It breaks my heart that someone so warm and full of love must face such adversity simply for being born in a part of the world where that's the norm. Abdoulie is trying to go to school, which costs $700 per semester. If we don't reach that goal though, $350 is acceptable because his principal agreed to accept half at the start of the semester and the other half at the end. The deadline to register for the upcoming semester is October 20th. Please help me send this literal diamond in the rough to school! Every cent recieved on here will be sent to him directly through Western Union. Any donations after the goal is reached would go to providing food and general staying-alive money that he and his siblings so desperately need. I am willing to provide his Western Union information as well to anybody who would prefer to do that instead. He needs our help.
