"Please meet Placid, a 27-year-old from Nigeria that studied in #Ukraine until he had to flee when the first bombs dropped. Since last night, he is staying with us. What he had to endure to get to Berlin is beyond belief.
"As a single, black male without a Ukrainian passport, he was not allowed to cross the border and was not helped with food and shelter so he had to stay outside for over four days waiting, hoping to be allowed to enter Poland .
"This photo was taken today when we showed him around in Berlin. He is a very friendly guy and he wants to stay in Germany. Luckily, the German government grants the right to stay and also to work in Germany also for non-Ukrainians who had to flee the country."

"This is the kindest and selfless act I have ever seen on this platform. Especially when it concerns a man of color. God bless you sir. This is indeed commendable."

"Moritz, thank you for this, am connecting w you because we are also hosting a Nigerian student who had to flee Ukraine and would love to compare notes.
"Still unclear actually that registration is straightforward in Germany for non-Ukrainian refugees from Ukraine and would love to connect on this and other opportunities. Have emailed you. Thanks! ps. EOTO is excellent for many resources and communities."

Chima Patience Nancy said:

"It's really saddening to see that our fellow Nigerians are trying everything possible to see Placid return to Nigeria where we have millions of unemployed graduates roaming the streets while foreigners willingly wanted to help. Some Nigerians are really very wicked. You have bitter hearts towards your own brother!!! Very annoying."
