Help keep Nelson in Canada!

Let’s raise money to help Nelson stay in Canada. Four years ago, our friend Nelson came to Canada on a music exchange program. He has touched many of our lives and is now faced with a big dilemma. In order to become a permanent resident in Canada, he needs to fly back to Africa and go through a legal process which could take 3 months or more. Being on a travellers visa for the past 4 years means that he has not been able to work to make any money. The goal for this Go Fund Me is to raise money to help support Nelson for his few months back home and help him with living expenses and legal fees. Let’s all band together to keep our friend where he belongs!
