young Ethiopian refugee hounded by slave-traffickers and forgotten in a Libyan prison – letter to UNHCR in Tunisia seeking help to resettle him

Alem, a young student from Mekele, in Tigray State, Ethiopia, last year fled the three foreign armies that invaded his homeland, each seeking to kill or to impress him and thousands of his contemporaries into their vicious ranks.

Twice abducted by slave-traders and organ-harvesting traffickers, first in Sudan then in Libya, he is now in hiding in Tripoli.

Please help NCCL to resettle Alem in the U.S or another peaceful country.

To underscore the despair which haunts young refugees amidst the anarchy on the streets of Tripoli, like the thousands who have gone before him to their deaths in the dark depths of the Mediterranean Sea, Alem is daily tempted to risk placing his life in the hands of pirates who demand huge monetary ransoms and sometimes organs for collateral to run the blockades of EU naval vessels.

Not untypically, the pirates choose to scuttle their junks rather than be caught, thus drowning the hundreds of Ethiopians on board in minutes.

Please help the NCCL apostolate to help this poor Christian boy. And the countless other Ethiopian Christians waiting in line for our help. Give online to gift@national-coalition.org at paypal.com. Or, click here to donate via national-coalition.org#gift .
