Help!

I have never (that I can think of in this very moment) actively asked any of you to support a cause. But now I am. Please sign this petition to stop a young woman being separated from her family, having her bright prospects extinguished and help show your agreement that sending a fellow human being to a country where she will legitimately fear for her life is simply wrong.

An electro pop 80's icon has shown his support. So follow suit!

These appeals are very admirable but why does it always have to be Britain. Is Congo not a former French colony ? I would of thought that this would be her first place to seek sanctuary or are there other reasons (financial) ?

I nearly didn't publish this comment. In fact, I may yet delete it.


"Why does it always have to be Britain?" I don't what that comment means. If it is alluding to what I think it might be then I will be deleting. The reason being, it makes me uncomfortable.

Jeanine has lived in the UK since she was 13. I do not know intimately the reasons she ended up in the UK. But she has been accepted, educated and began establishing herself as an altruistic young woman here. I would prefer not to see her sent back to a country where her safety and well being is far from certain.

I shared this based on human empathy. Not on Daily Mail scepticism, scrutiny and cynicism.
