Great to see this kind of friendly support for people when they are trying to start a new life after a traumatic experience.

I can't imagine going through so much turmoil, and then finding myself in a lonely and unfamiliar country. I hope this helps in some small way.

This is a fantastic organisation providing much needed friendly support, understanding and encouragement to refugees and asylum seekers which I am very happy to support

This is a wonderful initiative. It is surely hard enough being a refugee, particularly in a country with a government that is determined to create a 'hostile environment' for people who have fled their own homes, and a friend is probably one of the things they need most. Props also to Aviva for supporting this excellent charity.

I befriended a wonderful woman last year who had been seeking asylum here for 12 years. Her church group and myself went to support her at court and She was finally Approved to stay. It was a wonderful moment and I’m so proud to have been a small part of her journey. It’s vital we continue to support asylum seekers and refugees to create a better world.
