This applicant is a young Asylum Seeker from Egypt who arrived in the UK in April 2022, unaccompanied. He was street homeless for three months, sleeping in various parks across London. He has just been placed in Home Office initial accommodation, in central London; however, he has no money to buy nutritious food and clothing, or to cover the travel expenses to South London Refugee Association. Please can you help?

N is an Asylum Seeker who fled Afghanistan after the Taliban takeover. He arrived in the UK in March, after crossing the channel in a small boat. He is not currently receiving any Government Asylum support, which takes months to process, and is not allowed to work. He has lost everything, is destitute, and desperately needs support to buy food and basic supplies, as well as for travel to register with the Home Office, and to his solicitor for the Asylum application. Please can you help?

M is in her early fifties and has not had it easy in life: having to adjust to living with a Colostomy bag and scheduling Dialysis sessions in between work has not stopped her. Unfortunately, she broke her ankle recently and now the steady stream of income through work has stopped and she has found herself with no recourse to public funds. M has reached out, and gets help from a charity to change her status in the UK, but that will take time. She is in need of food vouchers so that she can keep her special diet.
