Asylum Granted!

IMG_5784We are thrilled to announce that in October 2019 another of our clients was granted asylum in the US!

With one parent jailed for political reasons and the other in hiding, our client came to the US two years ago on a student visa at the age of sixteen to escape prosecution. His asylum application approval comes less than a year after he graduated high school.

Thank you again to everyone who has contributed to our cause. Our 2019 Fall Fundraising Campaign is now live.

Good News as Summer Ends!

IMG_1590Four more clients of the Refugee Translation Project have been granted asylum in the United States!

With autumn around the corner, our Summer Fundraising Campaign is drawing to a close in 4 days! Please consider making a donation and reposting this far and wide.

Since we began in the spring of 2017, we have helped over 175 families and individuals from 8 countries by providing free translations of critical documents in Arabic, Turkish, and French.

This project has so far yielded at least 7 successful US asylum applications with many more still under review. We have also enabled the first step in dozens of relocation processes for adults and children with medical needs who are living in refugee camps and other unstable situations.

Due to the nature of this work and the confidentiality involved, it is difficult to follow up with the majority of the people we have helped. We will continue to post updates when we hear of our next successful case!

We would like to thank everyone who has donated their time and money to our project. None of this would be possible without your generous contributions.

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.
