Dear Sir, I am a young lady of 18 years old and a refugee in Ghana under the United Nations refugees Ghana. My country of Origin is Cape Verde Island. My parents, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Lomogan died on plane crash in December 23rd, 2003 in Cotonou, Benin Republic on there way to Lebanon. (www.cnn.com/2003/ WORLD/africa/12/26/benin.crash ). I write you to seek refugee in your country and to further my education. I have finished my secondary education and wish to further my education to Masters level or more. When my parents died in December 2003, i was the only child and 13 years old then. My parents were hotel management consultants.Two years after my parents died, my relatives forced me into marriage .Against my wish i married a 36 years old man. My relatives said the man will give me protection as tradition demands in my country. I never knew the marriage i went into until my first pregnancy at 16 years old. The man associated with my extended family members and shared my late parents belongings. When i complained, i was locked me up in a room and beaten up. The beatings continued until i lost my pregnancy. None of my relatives said anything positive to help me. I was fast losing my life until the police rescued and i was legally divorced. The terror i passed through in the hands of my family members are tormenting. I cannot go back to them again because my parents are no more and i have no siblings to share my life with. When i started nursing the idea of taking refugee in another country, i went to my father's home save box for my school papers, International passport, and birth certificate. It was also in the boxes that i saw papers of my father's bank deposits UK banks valued at 15,Million British Pounds. The fund was for a proposed hotel project in Ghana before my father died. We can work with the fund through getting a university admission for me.. with the University admission, i can get a visa easily and come to your country. The most important thing is my education. We can invest the fund in a lucrative business. I wait for your urgent reply. Thanks. Sharon Lomogan.
