Spring is here and so is our new fundraising campaign. Be the first to donate!

Thank you again to everyone who supported our Winter Fundraising Campaign. Together we raised over $2200 to go towards the cost of translations. The documents we translate include personal statements, medical records, legal documents, and other supporting evidence that is used to make strong cases for asylum or relocation, depending on the refugee’s situation.

Another Asylum Success Story

backpack-bag-close-up-1314058We are very excited to announce that another individual we helped has been granted asylum in the United States! Here is her story:

“I came to the US with only a backpack, as I was intending to stay for just a week. I had left my country to accompany my roommate to New York. She wanted to apply for asylum after the publishing house she founded was vandalized by a government-incited mob. While we were in New York, the political situation in our country deteriorated and the police raided our home. My colleagues at the human rights NGO where I worked warned me that it was not safe for me to return, as the police would be waiting for me at the airport with an arrest warrant. Arrest in my country, in the context of the current political problems, meant being detained indefinitely in terrible conditions and subjected to torture. I had no choice but to apply for asylum in the US. Having limited resources, I was glad to have found the Refugee Translation Project. They translated all my documents free of charge. The judge heard my case, and I was granted asylum.”

This wonderful news would not have been possible without the generous support of all our donors, who have offered both their money and time. We would like to thank you again for contributing to our cause.
