Refugees and Asylum Seekers

ATZUM seeks to extend assistance and protection to tens of thousands of refugees and asylum seekers who have fled to Israel in the past decade, particularly those from African nations who escaped the threats and privations of state sponsored violence, oppression and civil war. As these refugees have no safe country to which they might today return, ATZUM works to urge the State of Israel to assure their right to remain, to work, and to secure access to health insurance and adequate housing.
