The honorable Generous.
In the name of God, the most Merciful and the most Gracious. All praises be to God, the lord of the world, the master of the day after, the creator of everything in this universe.
We of the Delta Study Center Foundation are an educational foundation for orphaned children and poor children. The foundation was founded in 2006 which is addressed on Adil Makmur Street, Dolopo District, Madiun Regency, East Java, Indonesia. We of the Delta Study Center Foundation desperately need the help of the generous brothers.
The foundation aims to assist the learning process in facing the national exam for orphans and children from poor families who do not have enough finance to continue to get education from primary and secondary education for the better future of children
The Delta Study Center Foundation is funded by the community environment and benefactors around Dolopo Sub-district, Madiun District, East Java, Indonesia to keep this foundation to support the education of orphaned children and poor children.
The Delta Study Center Foundation currently has: 1 person leader, 6 teachers, 1 administrative staff, 1 hygiene worker, and students from orphans and the poor with approximately 150 children divided into 50 children aged 11-12 studying in Primary School and 100 children aged 13-15 years who are still studying in Junior High School. In 2015, we educated more than 200 children by December 2017. By the end of the year, the number of students will usually increase
Every month we have to spend money to help the learning activities for orphans and poor children in our place. Among others is for the provision of package books, exercise books, notebooks and writing equipment, electricity costs, room repair costs, the cost of house contracts that we occupy each month, the cost of drinking. For the house we live in, we are still renting. In the future we aspire to have a place of its own so do not rent anymore. We are very concerned with education for orphans and poor children in our city. The managers and teachers with brush serve for the children even if not paid. The children are very happy to learn at the Delta Study Center Foundation because it is free. Every month we have to spend around $ 1950 for our foundation operations. Photo reality of the Delta Study Center foundation we send via email.
Generous, we desperately need your help to create intelligent, learned, noble, and well educated children in our city. We want you to be a regular monthly donor to assist the foundation's operations.
Hopefully God replied the favor of your help. Thank You

Your help can be distributed to our account number:

Threat to Costa Rican status
What's the point of having an email address if it doesn't work can you imagine an email this fundamentally important to any British National wherever you are especially here in Central America and the email for the British Embassy doesn't work!!!!

I don't think I would've bothered to have beat the drum this much only that my status in Costa Rica is threatened otherwise could you blame me if I didn't want to communicate

Threat to Costa Rican status
I had previously contacted your telephone services and was told there was nothing that could be done for me

My name is Michael and I met UK national and have resided in Costa Rica for 4 1/2 years.

I am and non-resident of Costa Rica, and so get restamped into the country every 90 days

On 18 January 2014 I travelled from Costa Rica to Nicaragua.

I had previously visited Nicaragua on 23 December 2013 and left 27 December 2013.
For some reason not known to myself the immigrations officer only stand me in for five days back into Costa Rica.

Because of work commitments I was only able to get out of Costa Rica on 18 January .

This time on my return I was held by the customs officers in Nicaragua, and detained by them from approximately 6.05pm to 8:30 Am

I was advised by the officials that they'll work five fraudulent stamps in my passport
During the period of February 2012

I had no idea what they were talking about as I have been through Nicaragua and through several countries in the last 12 months with no problems

The officials would not like lets me make a call or contact any legal advice or family
But for a little while allowed me to have my phone which ran out of power that I was able to contact a friend advised him that I was being held .

Unfortunately he didn't realise the seriousness of the situation and so did not contact me until the following day.

While being detained I was not physically assaulted but denied water food and had my shoes removed, The cell was infested with mosquitoes and suffered several one of my body.
To say in adequate toilet facilities is putting it mildly,

They also took $160 from my wallet and left me with $20 to buy a bus ticket back to Costa Rica.

But first I was reprimanded to the Costa Rican customs, Who in turn advised that I should only have five days in Costa Rica before leaving.

Costa Rica has been my home for some time now and to leave under the circumstances not only is sad but constitutionally and morally wrong.
When you understand I have done nothing wrong.
