Help Josef and his family stay in Sweden!

Josef and his family came to Sweden in 2009 from Iran and have lived here for 10 years. They need your help to be able to afford a lawyer before the end of April or they’re going to be deported back to Iran.

Josef is an educated welder and his little brother still goes to school. The brother was about 5 years old when they came to Sweden so he has lived longer in Sweden than in Iran. Since Josef and his father doesn’t have Swedish citizenship or residence they aren't allowed to take a job so the help is really needed.

In 2013 Josefs mother died and got buried in Sweden and the same year his family converted from Islam to Christianity. If they get deported back to Iran there is a big risk that they will be killed for their religion and belifes. Josef and his family are what any citizen in Sweden should strive to be like but they still haven’t received residence in Sweden after 10 years.
Please help us give Josef and his family a good and safe life in Sweden!

All help is appriciated!

Thank you!
