This weekend on "Diasporan Truth" we will be talking about African communities in the diaspora. Are they harmful or helpful? When we leave our home countries and arrive in our adopted homes, the first thing we miss is seeing and receiving support from our family and friends. Depending on the size, functionality and location of the community, often there will be associations already set up to assist new comers to settle in smoothly and deal with accommodation, employment, education,health and childcare issues. However, not all communities are created equal. Stories of ineffectual assistance/support programs, mismanaged community funds, bickering, disorganised and infrequent meet ups trickle through the grapevine. We would love for you to participate in the show by sharing your experiences, commenting on the topic and asking any questions!
