# Kofi Emmanuel Your chances of safety are slim to none especially since we don't like your kind being from Ghana.Its doubtful you'd be granted a visa anyway so don't bother coming here you're not welcome.

Dear friends,
Don't discriminate the people of any country in the world on the basis of their cast, Colour, Religion & races.
God is one whether you worship in the name of "Lord Rama" or "Lord Rahim" or "Lord Jejus" or " Guru waahe guru". No religion tells you to hate & Discriminate anybody in the name of any religion. God makes the Humans only not the cast. Only humans make the barriers & boundaries to disrespect the laws of the God. Destroy the barriers & boundaries & open your hearts for everyone of the everyone religion then only you can find the God in the real sense otherwise not. Every Religion shows the same way to reaching the God but it's up to you, can you understand the signals.
For Example:-
If you are in trouble & you are Muslim this is question of your life or death you need of help of anyone who pulls you up otherwise you fall down in the dark & the helping person is Hindu so in that situation can you ask the person for taking help hey dear tell me your religion. Can you do this? Think? Answer is No. You surely take the help to uplift yourself. Think who helps you.
Don't expect the magics . God helps to their child through its payriots .
Love the people don't Discriminate them on any basis.

With Love Kuwait & the rest World,

Dear friends,
Take only Kuwait dinar becuz you earn in Kuwait & Spend in Kuwait. Don't be fool in any other currencies jobs offer in Kuwait becaz kuwait's currency is dinar. Please check the cost of living in Kuwait whether it is under your monthly salary or not. Accept offers from any employer only when he/she pays you salary over & above to the cost of living per month in Kuwait. If you accept low salary then how will you bear day to day expenses.

With love Kuwait and everybody in the World,

Gagan Rastogi
