Aid Organization for Refugees and Asylum Seekers in Israel

There are about 33,000 African refugees and asylum seekers (including their children) living in Israel. They fled atrocities and persecution in their countries of origin - but in Israel the authorities mistreat them and deny them status and rights.

Additionally about 35,000 Ukrainian citizens live in Israel, about 14,000 of whom fled with their children to Israel since the start of the war in Ukraine.

Refugees and Asylum seekers are an integral part of Israeli society. We are committed to fight for their right to a life of dignity, security, inclusion and equality in Israel.
