A very dear friend of mine was just sent away to a relative's house because he refused to babysit while his parents spent the worker's compensation check at a casino to nurse their habits. They then punished him, called him a godless creature (again), and sent him away to live with his brother, and might send him back to Poland to live with other relatives if he does not comply. He does not have internet or any other means to contact me or anyone else.
He's still technically a minor at seventeen, and he's been undergoing the same mental abuse and oppression for years. I don't know what to do, but I want to do something.
Please, anyone help. I normally would've let it go but he's never been sent away before, and I fear for his general welfare.
