Tesfay’s story

Originally from Eritrea, Tesfay had been living alone in the UK whilst his wife Asmarina and son Semere were in Ethiopia. His sole source of income was a bursary giving him an annual income of less than £5000 a year. He applied for visas for his family to join him in the UK but was unable to raise the money for flights and other travel costs in the 30 days the visas were valid. Through our partnership with Miles for Migrants we were able to arrange flights for Tesfay’s family.

“They had an enjoyable and nice trip. They are excited and love the UK. I am excited and happy to live with them. For the moment we don’t know what are plans are for the future but I will let you know later on. Finally I would like to say many thanks for your help.”
