AMERA Egypt, a longtime IDC member, is facing imminent closure due to a lack of funding.

At present, AMERA provides free and extremely critical legal, social and mental health services to refugees, asylum seekers and trafficked persons in Egypt.

The closure of AMERA will have significant negative consequences for these vulnerable populations in Egypt, both in and out of immigration detention, and as such, the IDC now calls upon our supporters and members to support this urgent appeal for emergency funds to keep AMERA open.

Please consider how you or your networks may be able to assist, and share this urgent appeal widely, see
