Aida, Pride of Green Pastures

This is Aida, who was a resident of Green Pastures Partner, Boaz Trust in Manchester. 

Aida escaped Iran because of political persecution. In Iran she had worked as an architect.
Refused asylum by the Home Office Aida didn't know where to turn...

'If family say go, if the Home Office say go, if friends say go. Who is left? Only Boaz is left.
They give me a safe place. Boaz brings me joy.'

Boaz supported Aida in a number of ways not least solicitor and case worker support for a
fresh claim for asylum. In October 2015 Aida was granted refugee status. Since getting her
refugee status Aida has gone on to be accepted onto a work placement with Keepmoat,
one of the UK's top 10 construction firms.

The existence of The Boaz Trust and other partners who support refugees and asylum
seekers means there is a future for people like Aida who have nowhere else to turn.
