I Just Want to Be Free

I had no rights, no freedom to choose my path.

Arrival: Mental Health

"Refugees experience all kinds of trauma prior to, during, and after their journeys to safety..."

The Journey: What We Carry

I pray most of all for my children who are still in Afghanistan and Iran.


"I only want to be treated like a human being. I just want to be free and to live in peace and safety..."

Arrival: The Government Has Rejected My Asylum Request

If they send me back to Afghanistan or any other country, what will I do?

I Only Want to be Treated Like a Human Being

I just want to be free and to live in peace and safety.

Belonging: I Work Hard so I Can Succeed Here

I want my family to stay together here where we can be safe.

I Brought my Koran and Prayer Rug with Me

We left Iran because we are Afghans.

For the Safety of Our Children

Wife, mother of three. Now a refugee seeking a better future for her family.
