The refugee process is terribly long in Southeast Asia.

In the best case scenarios, applying with the UNHCR in a place like Bangkok can take two years.

For most it takes longer and they live in fear of arrest, unable to work to support themselves.

Ryan, the subject of today’s video interview, and his family were in transit in Bangkok for five years.

“People can’t just simply disappear…”

Only half of the families we support are currently sponsored.

Consider giving a regular donation to sponsor a family and share this message to spread the word about our work.

Together we can make sure more families like Ryan’s have a chance to start again.
