Radia is a 32 year old woman from Pakistan who came to the UK as a student. She entered into a relationship with a young man she met in the UK and became pregnant. Her parents were not willing to take on the responsibility of supporting a child and cast her out to fend for herself and her unborn baby.
Whilst Radia considered returning to Pakistan, the suggestion was met with death threats due to her status as a single mother. This risk of persecution led to her subsequent claim for asylum in Wales.
Our Women’s Worker supported and advised her throughout her asylum claim and within a month of her asylum interview she was granted status.
She has since given birth to a daughter and is overjoyed to know that her family is safe and supported in Wales.
