RAIC - IndonesiaRAIC banner


Sector of Work: Refugee services, humanitarian work, legal aid, mental health

Region/Country: Jakarta, Indonesia

Mission: Information, advice and support, for refugees, by refugees.

Description: After becoming community interpreters for refugees, the founders both started interpreting for a few refugee lawyers during interviews with people whose first applications to UNHCR had been rejected. A small, new Indonesian network called Suaka, supported by the Jakarta Legal Aid Institute, was assisted by international refugee lawyers, who volunteered at various times between 2014 and early 2017. Interpreting for these experienced refugee lawyers and watching them carefully draw out a person’s story to see if it fit the international legal criteria to become a refugee...bought home to them how completely vulnerable asylum seekers and refugees are, and also that every single person in the refugee community was struggling with the same issues...The founders, Mozhgan and Jafar, are beyond excited to provide this information to everyone, and welcome the involvement of anyone from the refugee community who can provide information for our pages from different areas of Indonesia. The agency provides information and services for refugees and asylum seekers in Indonesia, including: legal aid, eye check-ups, mental health journals, and care packages.
