South Sudan- Relocated to the US
Elizabeth came to Israel in 2007 with six children. Since then, three of her six children were deported back to South Sudan. The remaining three children are still in Israel. One of her sons was detained for 1.5 years in Saharonim prison in Israel, the detention facility for African asylum seekers located in the Negev desert. Elizabeth and her three children have been approved for resettlement to the USA. She is hoping to find a way to bring her other three children from South Sudan to the USA so that her family can be reunited.
“Kuchinate has been a big help. I have a little bit of work. To use my hands to create something and to develop an expertise, gives me a sense of pride. It’s a place where I can come and let go of my stresses with a community of women.”
