Shirley became a victim of extortion in her home country, targeted by paramilitary groups due to her cousin’s involvement in Colombian politics. Her cousin, an advisor to the mayor, was hunted down and killed by guerrillas, leading to the disappearance of other relatives, assassination attempts, and the tragic loss of Shirley’s father.

Fearing for their lives, Shirley had to flee, relocating to another city with her children due to persistent threats. Seeking refuge in Mexico with her youngest son, she found that the threats persisted. Now, she is pursuing asylum in the United States to safeguard herself and her children.

Regrettably, Shirley lacks the financial means to initiate her asylum application. Your support can transform her aspirations into reality, sponsor her case, and contribute to the positive change she seeks for herself and her family.
