“I was so relieved. I then knew I was safe and I could talk to people I can trust. It is incredible to think that Asylum Welcome helped me in the past and can help me and my family now when we are so unsure about our future.” Mohammad
Mohammad’s story is special… most of the Afghan people we are helping have never been to the UK before. They have faced traumatic upheaval – uprootedness, dislocation, a fear for their safety and a sense of dread as to what the future might hold. These feelings are common among all the people that we support.
We have assembled a sizeable team of staff and volunteers to coordinate our Afghan response – providing wraparound support seven days a week. It’s a huge stretch to sustain work at this scale and intensity, even more so when no one knows how long it will continue. Meanwhile, we continue to provide crucial support to over 1,300 refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants each year.
We are asking for your support today. Can you help our clients over the winter months? Any donation you can make will go towards supporting clients with essential needs including food, rent, transport costs, and warm clothing. Please make a donation of £20, £50, or whatever you can afford by clicking here.
I hope you’ll feel able to make a special donation this winter here. It will make all the difference.
We are so grateful to you. Together, we can help to change the world.
With warmest wishes for Christmas and the New year,
Service Deputy Manager, Afghan Resettlement Service Scheme, Asylum Welcome
