25th Anniversary Year of Action Refugiés

Maura McGrath, CND

Early in the morning of January 17th, about twenty people, made up of staff, board members, human rights lawyers and student interns gathered for breakfast to launch the 25th Anniversary Year of Action Refugiés (www.actionr.org).

Ever since opening its doors in 1994, this small NGO has been working indefatigably to protect the right of human beings to ask for refuge in another country. Presently, I am happy to work on the Board of Directors of Action Refugiés whose staff had been a tremendous help to Refuge Juan Moreno - an emergency shelter for refugee claimants from 1993- 2008.
