Make 2021 a very good year for someone!

Now more than ever people need help getting out of camps, resettling in safe places, and obtaining asylum. Access to free translations is crucial to winning cases. By donating to our End of Year Fundraising Campaign, you can make 2021 a very good year for someone in need of safety.

Thanks to two, very generous donors, your contribution will by matched, doubling your impact!

Our end of year campaign supports an ongoing process to build a reserve fund to pay our translators, some of whom are refugees themselves, and supports us to strengthen our organization, as we build collaboratively with immigration service providers to meet an unprecedented scope of need.  We have expanded our language capabilities to include Dari, Kurdish, Pashto, Spanish, Swedish, and Urdu alongside Arabic, French, German, Greek, and Turkish. 

Many barriers stand between asylum seekers and safety. By providing free translation services to refugees, we are ensuring that document translation is not one of them. 

Thank you!!

Digital Mixer Available to Watch

If you couldn’t make it, click here for the recording of the event and learn from Jessica Rofé and Hammadi Khelifi, as they discuss the refugee situation going into 2021 and how the Refugee Translation Project can help. For those of you craving good news right now, watch here and learn how next year *might* be better for refugees.

There are a few more days left in our End of the Year Campaign. If you can give please do. If not, perhaps you can forward this appeal to a friend. With your help we will continue to provide free translations to people fleeing danger and oppression. What we do is pretty simple but the need is great and becoming greater. Our matching donors are still matching your gifts. Power us in 2021 by joining the campaign here.

OR you can sustain us throughout the new year, by becoming a MONTHLY DONOR. I know a lot of you have been wanting a way to continue to support automatically. Your day has come thanks to our fiscal sponsor, Angels to Angels.

May you have a safe and healthy new year!
