The writer of this piece prefers to stay anonymous, but she wanted to write about the liberating effect of becoming an activist for asylum seekers. Despite 18 years separated from her family and children, she remains without secure status and dependent on others. Despite everything she is an inspirational woman. This is her introduction to her experience of joining the Sisters not Strangers Coalition.


This material is part of the Covid Chronicles from the Margins project, funded by The Open University and The Hague. The project aims to highlight the impact of the pandemic on refugees, asylum seekers & undocumented migrants.
