Please help us stop the deportation of Susie, a Canadian mother, sister, daughter who suffers cognitive harm and PTSD as a result of the horrific abuse she suffered in her birth country (Susie's real name is being withheld to protect her family's privacy)

About us -

The Elizabeth Fry Society of Cape Breton works with, and on behalf of, women in conflict with the law by responding to the needs of women in prison, and developing programmes and services in the community for women who have been charged with offences or are at risk of coming into conflict with the law. The Society lobbies for the improvement of conditions for women in local penal institutions and for changes in the criminal justice system and encourages public understanding of related issues.

About Susie -

Susie came to Canada in 1993 from her birth country where she sustained horrific abuse. She was beaten and sexually assaulted on numerous occasions and bears scars and permanent cognitive harm as a result. Susie is a permanent resident in Canada but was never granted citizenship. Susie has struggled immensely in Canada and most recently she was criminalized and is now at risk of being deported.

In an attempt to avoid deportation we are seeking your help to pursue a humanitarian and compassionate application. In order to complete this application werequire a professional assessment and diagnosis of her mental health and cognitive ability. We estimate the costs associated with the assessment and H&C application to be $3000. This is a race against the clock; Susie could be deported in the next 4 to 6 months. If she is deported, she most certainly will not survive. Please give what you can. Any small amount helps!
