Help Save my Friend from Her Abusive Family

$975 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 25 people in 28 days

Hello, my name is Chase. I have a friend who is living in Indonesia who wants to move to the USA, but doesn't have the money to. Because she is under 18, I am running this gofundme for her because her parents won't let her have a bank account and she is too young to use Paypal. Below is, in her words, an explanation of her situation and what she plans do to with the funds she can raise:

"Hi I'm Val, a 17 year old Indonesian nonbinary trans girl who's currently living in an emotionally abusive family. I'm currently looking to study and work in the United States since I've already graduated high school (I studied in Singapore). I hate asking for help, but my household situation got way worse because my parents forced me to go back to Indonesia because I spent too much money on getting medication for my mental conditions. They are currently doubling down on me and not allowing me to contact any of my friends in Singapore for help. I have a friend in the United States willing to help me that I can live with, but the main problem is getting to them. My parents are ok with me moving but want me to pay for the trip myself, and my friend can't afford to spend over a thousand dollars to help me move over here. I need around $120 to pay for a visa, and another $900 for a one-way plane ticket, any extra money will be used as a cushion for anything unexpected that may come up."
