K and E are two brothers from Nigeria currently detained at Adelanto Detention Facility and need your support!
K and E are two Nigerian brothers who fled Nigeria after narrowly escaping death. The brothers were farmers in a municipality in Delta State in Southern Nigeria. This area has become internationally infamous for an escalating violence and refugee crisis, with over 1300 people killed and over 300,000 people displaced in the first half of 2018 alone. From 2015 to 2017, their family farm was attacked several times, their father was killed and their other brother was mutilated and is now missing. In 2017, the brothers were attacked, critically injured, and their farm, their only source of livelihood, burned. They were pursued throughout the country and could not find a safe place to hide. K and B were able to get to Ecuador and then walked north through Colombia, Central America and Mexico, spending many days trekking the jungle with no food. When they arrived at the border, they spent some time working in car washes in Tijuana.
They requested asylum when they entered the US over six months ago, and they were placed in Adelanto Detention Center. The brothers were granted a $5,000 bond each, an amount that neither of them nor the sponsor family can afford.
This is why we are asking for your help.
Please join us in collectively fundraising to support for K and E to pay their bond, gain their freedom, and help them start a new life in the United States.
Donate what you can! Every amount is much appreciated.
