We received a very special email this week we thought we’d share with all of you. It read as follows:
Hello Ms. Garcia, (Dulce Garcia, Executive Director)
This is Asim, the Sudanese asylum seeker that your colleagues and you have successfully liberated a week ago from OMDC.
Yeah, I aware that you might be busy now with processing of freeing someone else from detention or maybe with traveling to somewhere to explain it to somebody and convince them to join and support your efforts.
Anyway.. I wanted to express my deep gratitude to you and Border Angels for releasing us from the detention.
What you do is so amazing and incredible that is wasn’t be possible for to get out of the detention without your massive support, guys.
We are so touched that despite everything he has gone through, he remains such a positive, kind soul and took the time to send this to us. This email serves as a small reminder of why we we will continue our fight against hate, racist and inhumane policies, and freeing as many people as we can from detention. We are so grateful for your continued support because when Asim thanks us, he also thanks all of you!
