Aid Organization for Refugees and Asylum Seekers in Israel
There are about 28,000 asylum seekers 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.
Asylum seekers are an integral part of society - we are committed to fight for their right to a life of dignity, security, inclusion and equality in Israel.
