New Refugee, Isioma, gives back to Manchester City of Sanctuary from her first pay packet

In 2017, after several years of appealing and waiting, gathering fresh material to evidence her truth, Isioma was given her ‘Leave to Remain’ in the UK.

She persisted in job hunting and applying for jobs until in March this year she started her first UK paid work.

She phoned to say that she had just set up a direct debit to Manchester City of Sanctuary in thanksgiving and to help other people struggling to keep their hope alive whist in the asylum system.
