ASSAF- Aid Organization for Refugees and Asylum Seekers in Israel
ASSAF was founded in 2007 in order to aid refugees and asylum seekers in Israel. In Hebrew, the acronym for ASSAF stands for the Aid Organization for Refugees. Our aim is to promote the rights of refugees in their encounters with the state authorities. This includes providing advocacy and support to those in need: thousands of men, women and children who are conducting a daily struggle to overcome memories of the traumatic experiences they have escaped, and who are living in Israel without status or access to basic human rights.
