What is it like to be an asylum seeker, separated from your family and unsure when you will be able to see them again, living on £5 per day, unable to work and with no idea when the Home Office will make a decision on your case? Especially when you have been used to a very different quality of life. Osama, who we work with, told the Guardian recently about his experiences, his frustrations and how SRS have been able to help.
And how successful has Suffolk been in welcoming refugees and asylum seekers and helping them to rebuild their lives here? Osama and Zinah, a refugee from Iraq who we are supporting through the refugee resettlement programme, feature in a piece in the East Anglian Daily Times/Ipswich Star as part of a series about multiculturalism in Ipswich.
