Rahouf is a refugee from the Ivory Coast who arrived in Richmond a year and a half ago. He is young and motivated, finding success at work, learning English, and getting his driver's license. Rahouf will soon have surgery that will require bed rest recovery for two months. His warehouse job does not provide any paid time off, and he is ineligible for social service programs like disability. Rahouf will need assistance paying his rent and bills until he is physically able to return to work.

what happens after your donation

  1. 1

    A Supporter (that’s you!) connects with a story of hopeful progress out of crisis and chooses to support a local neighbor by purchasing their urgent need.

  2. 2

    The money from that purchase goes into a dedicated Stripe© Giving Wall account held by the partner organization whose client had the need met.

  3. 3

    Our partner organization’s Giving Wall lead speedily purchases the need and gives it directly to their client, or pays the bill directly.
