I just need to get this off my chest, and ask for advice on how to deal with it. My little sister is going off to Nigeria tomorrow on a volunteering trip for 3 months and I didn't think I would be this sad and worried. For one thing we don't even live together, so it's not to say that not seeing her for a few months is going to make a massive difference. For another she is going on a governments scheme so it should be safe enough, right?
The issue is that it is Northern Nigeria, not the South. I have heard stories about Boko Haram terror attacks and the kidnapping of foreign tourists and aid workers. She is a flighty, irresponsible girl and makes friends too quickly, I worry that she might end up trusting the wrong people. She laughs at me when I try to give her advice on how to stay safe. My parents are being surprisingly laid back about it, but I guess that's because there is nothing to do, as she is of age and has raised all of the money for the trip.
