Jawad is resettling from Cairo to Sweden. As his friends, we want to support his start into a new life in a new country. This campaign is for the caring, clever, thoughtful, funny, whisky-drinking, mate-drinking, guitar-playing Jawad whom we know and appreciate.

Dear all,
time for a long overdue update: last night I finally spoke to Jawad and passed on our collective gift. Overall we raised just over €2700! I've put all your messages to Jawad in a card and sent it to him. He was very touched! As you can imagine, the first few weeks in a small Swedish town in the dark of winter have not been easy and I can confirm that this surprise brought a big smile to his face.
As for the 'hard cash': I will be transferring the sum to his account as soon as he gives me the green light, as he is still figuring out the rules and obligations he has to follow given his current legal status in Sweden.
I will close the GoFundMe campaign now.
Thank you all once again for your spirit of friendship and generosity. Wishing you a happy holiday season,
Karoline

Hello everyone! Just to let you know, Jawad safely arrived in Sweden this evening. He is staying with his brother for the moment.
All the best

Dear all,

we exceeded € 2000! Thank you everyone!

Jawad's is scheduled to fly to Sweden tomorrow, Wednesday, 17 October. We'll all be thinking of him :)

I will keep the campaign open until the end of the month of October. If you would still like to contribute, as I know some of you had planned, it would be great if you could do so in the next week or so. If you have any more personal messages you'd like to send along, please let me have those in the coming days too.

Warm regards to all,
Karoline

Dear all, thank you for the great response and your generous contributions!
The campaign remains open at least until Jawad arrives in Sweden. From what I hear, he is packing as we speak ;) So you can still give.
However, I have just learned that I will be obliged by the GoFundMe platform to withdraw funds in order to accept further donations. If this happens before Jawad is in a position to receive the money, I may have to "park" it temporarily in my personal account. This is not ideal, but I ask for your kind trust in case this happens. Of course every penny & cent will make it to Jawad in the end.
Best!
