Zafeera’s story

In Sudan Zafeera studied Business Management and she’s now graduated. Her husband Ibrahim worked in a greengrocers ‘The same idea as Tesco, Lidl’.

Apart for three years after Ibrahim was forced to flee Sudan the couple kept in touch on the phone and through Facebook and Whatsapp.

We have been a part for over 3 years and it has been so difficult for both of us to be separate but we  stayed in touch all the time and  finally we are back together again, I am so happy.

When the visa was granted they needed help with travel so Zafeera could enter the UK before her visa expired, he initially found it difficult to get help.

To be honest after they said there are some difficulties I did not know what to do, but then they spoke to you on my behalf and you offer to help without a second thought. I would like to thank you on the behalf of my wife, much appreciate for your help it is very kind of you.

Although Zafeera and Ibrahim face some initial difficulties arranging housing and work they are optimistic about the future.

We are planning to start a new and fresh life in here, there are so many ideas but we are trying build things up and from there.
