Old-fashioned word-of-mouth, talk-to-friends networking has found just-in-time temporary housing for our 31-year-old asylum seeker from Tunisia.
A man who met Mr. T (the Tunisian) at an open house hosted by T’s host for a week, mentioned to someone he knows of our need. Although the woman hadn’t met Mr. T. she responded by volunteering to let Mr. T stay with her until mid-September.
All done without the help of Mark Zuckerberg or the Twitter bird… although I very much appreciate how my friends helped spread the word of our plight online.
For now, we are off Red Alert! Our sensors are scanning for a place in September (and that’s also the last month our refugee from the Congo at his present place. I guess we are on Yellow Alert (which is better than Battlestar Galactica’s Condition Orange).
