Dear Supporter of Irida,
On behalf of the Irida team, we hope you and your loved ones are safe and sound.
2023 has launched for good, finding us busy and with some developments that we would like to share with you.
We witnessed our community growing and flourishing - rising above 2021, we had 490 women registered to the center. In mid-2022, this number increased; we are currently supporting more than 660 women and their children with access to critical focused, and rigorous solutions.
55 refugee and asylum-seeking women received 76 different legal services.
“I came to the seaside to overcome my fear. I had faith that I could overcome my fear thanks to God. I had the willingness to rise above my fear. Everybody’s presence and support encouraged me to try to get into the water. I felt great joy, hope, and courage”
An Arabic-speaking community member with a traumatic experience related to water that was caused during her journey.
She was empowered to battle against her fear in the PSS sessions “Together we build the ship of hope”
She felt so good about herself that at the end of the trip she would not get out of the water.
Summing up, we would like to thank you for your continuous support to our work. Embracing our mission makes us inspired.
Thank you so much.
Stay tuned until our next report.
