Distinguished Chair,
Distinguished Director-General, Excellencies, Heads of Delegations, Ladies, and Gentlemen,

I am humbled and privileged to be here today addressing this distinguished Council. It is an honor to refer the collaboration and relationship cemented between the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and International Emergency and Development Aid (IEDA RELIEF). IOM works on migration is of interest to IEDA RELIEF and we are looking forward to developing a closer relationship. The probability of someone like me, coming from a small ethnic minority group in Eastern DRC is just as odd as winning the 1,5 Billion-dollar recent Mega million Jackpot in the US. My journey as a refugee, seeking asylum in Uganda to being resettled in Houston, Texas is a living testimony.

Allow me to start by expressing our gratitude for being given this opportunity to be part of this body and bring a unique perspective on Migration issues as a former refugee from the Democratic Republic of the Congo who once was given a chance to resettle to his new Country, The USA is now making a difference around the globe addressing poverty, human rights and development while giving back to communities in need regardless of who they are, their origin and where they live around the Globe.
