As part of his community work, Abdel Rahman regularly interviews community members, conducting refugee testimonies for the purposes of basic needs, educational and service provisioning assessments. In the course of this work, which continues until today, Abdel Rahman shares relevant historical accounts of historical and sociopolitical importance, as among his exiled compatriots.
As Abdel Rahman introduces on particular case, “Mr. Nasir stands as a self-evident example of the suffering and challenges facing the true and brave refugees who have been resourceful and resilient in their struggle for durable solutions to the UNHCR resettlements section in asylum countries.”
Mr. Nasir is a refugee from East Sudan. He registered at the UNHCR in February 2004. As shown on his Yellow Card (Asylum Seeker Registration), Nasir’s mother and sister both lived in the United States of America. Nasir’s family reunification process was lengthy. It took him a decade in Cairo to hear the final result.
