Israel recognizes Mutasim Ali as 1st Sudanese refugee
Few words can describe the renewed hope and excitement we feel right now! Today Mutasim Ali (ARDC's director) became the first Sudanese national to receive refugee status from Israel, thanks to the aid of Hotline for Refugees and Migrants and a community of Israeli and asylum-seeker supporters.
On many days, hope is fleeting for the thousands of asylum seekers in Israel who worry for their uncertain futures. However, today we feel strong again. And tomorrow we will continue our struggle for rights with renewed faith in our work and in Israel.
