Refugee Voices: Ashraf Bashir Hamid
Description: As victims of violence and persecution, refugees come to the United States to seek safety. But all too often, they arrive traumatized, unaware of the complexities of the U.S. asylum system, and without capacity to afford legal counsel. Since 1978, Human Rights First has provided a link between asylum seekers and pro bono attorneys, giving refugees a chance to live their lives free from fear. Ashraf Bashir Hamid is from Sudan. Ashraf was threatened, harassed, and attacked in his home country of Sudan because of his political activities. He fled the country with his wife and six month-old son in order to save his life and received asylum in 1998 through the assistance of Human Rights First. After winning asylum, Ashraf set up a non-profit, the Gena Foundation, dedicated to providing primary health services and education to marginalized and vulnerable populations in Sudan. In September 2011, Ashraf participated in the UN’s Department of Public Information NGO conference bringing together more than 1,500 non-profits from around the world. Ashraf presented the Gena Foundation’s work and met with UN officials. He hopes that these connections will help him to advance the good work he is trying to accomplish through his organization.
