Dear Sir/Madame
I wish to inform you that i'm a cameroonian by nationality and i now live in exile in Thailand reason being that my country doesn't support gay rights.I am a bachelors degree holder back in 2010 and i am 27years old. When i fist found that i was gay i did everything to try to hide it but i couldn't hide it for long and when i came out public i was forced out of the community and banned from participating in public activities,i was also disowned by my family Due to the shame and embarassment i had to flee from my country to sort refuge in Thailand where i now live. I'm having hard times living in Thailand due to the lack of jobs and moreso communication problems since they neither speak English nor French All i ask of your organisation is a little helping hand to keep me going and to help solve some of my problems Thanks for you understanding
