My story

[p]A great opportunity to double your donation! Hope Projects is taking part in the [b]Birmingham Legal Walk 2019[/b] and raising funds via the Midland Legal Support Trust for its advice services. [/p][p]Funds raised in previous years enabled us to help hundreds of people practically, and helped to overturn many miscarriages of justice.[/p][p]Hope provides high quality legal advice to asylum seekers in the UK from all across the world who have been refused by the Home Office. Coordinator Phil Davis says [i]"Sadly the British asylum system is complex and often hostile. Many people are refused the protection they desperately need simply because they get lost in the system." [/i][/p][p]When your asylum appeal is refused, you are evicted from your house, all your money is stopped and you are not allowed to work. You are left street homeless and destitute. So Hope also provides practical support in the form of housing and funds - because you can't fight a legal case properly when you're struggling just to stay alive. [/p][p][b][i]Post walk update: Our team of walkers included George Reiss and Phil Davis and three refugee friends. We met lots of folk along the way, walked the full 10km, and really enjoyed the evening. You can still donate to Hope Projects with donations doubled up to £500. We're half way there at the time of writing ... please help us to reach the full amount![/i][/b][/p][p][b][i](Thanks to Mo.G for the photos)[/i][/b][/p]
