Malaysian student raising money to stay in Canada, where he can be himself

Hazim Ismail is a 26 year old psychology student at U of W. He's also gay and an atheist, and has been disowned by his Malaysian family, who were financially supporting his education. If he can't stay enrolled in school, he faces the possibility of being sent back to his home country where it's illegal to be gay.
