2018 has been a challenging year for refugees, asylum seekers and other displaced people around the world. During times like these, it is more important than ever that we keep up the fight on behalf of these vulnerable individuals and families – no matter who they are or where they're from.

At HIAS we respect the experience, identity and beliefs of all people. We value each person's voice and ensure that all have an opportunity to be heard. And we are committed to helping people of all nationalities and faiths build lives in safety and freedom. These values inspire everyone at HIAS to remain dedicated to welcoming the stranger and protecting the refugee, even in difficult times. 

Thank you for taking a moment to hear from a few of us, and please know there are many, many more dedicated people who work together every day to try to realize our vision for a better world.

And from all of us, thank you for everything you’ve done to support HIAS this year. It is your support that helps us keep up this crucial work.
