It’s with great relief that we can announce our Sudanese client who was detained last Monday has been released from Yarl’s Wood. She is still waiting to find out the outcome of her fresh claim, so those who were praying for her please continue to do so. Thanks to everyone for your support- we will keep you updated!
NB. This picture was taken by the client last year during the ‘Meaningful Lives’ photography project- entitled ‘Fly Little Birds’.
This week is Poverty and Homelessness Action Week and we’re joining with loads of organisations around the country to pray and take action for those facing social and economic barriers in our nation. Here at Boaz we’re focusing on destitute asylum seekers and refugees, who as you may well know, experience barriers to accessing the things many of us take for granted each day.
Today we focus on… awareness and campaigns
Pray for Dave attending the Centre for Social Justice conference tomorrow- that he will be able to make contact with movers and shakers in the field of asylum! Please also pray for our friends at Sound off for Justice as this is an important week for the Welfare bill.
Take action today by going to the City of Sanctuary website and registering your support. If you’ve got time today,why not also visit the NCADC website and sign some petitions?! Your help really does make a difference!
Glory, one of our Boaz clients who has been refused asylum since 2007, and has been in Boaz accommodation for the last 2 years, has been detained at Yarl’s Wood Detention Centre and is due to be deported at the end of the month.
Please pray for safety if she is deported, for peace and comfort for her and all those who know her, and for compassionate people to work with her over the next few weeks. Please pray as well that if there is anything her solicitor or the team working with her can do, that they will be able to make quick and wise decisions in these final few days.
Thanks for your support- we’ll keep you updated.
