8th June, 2023 –
Little Maryam Foufa, aged just 10 years old, still sits in the Edirne Removal Centre, waiting to know her fate. The removal centre, which has been likened to a prison, provides no humane conditions of living, even to the children and minors, whom are subjected to mistreatment.
Maryam Foufa is one of the many children who were being persecuted with their families in their home countries, and had gone to seek asylum by crossing the Turkish-Bulgarian border, as advised by human rights organizations to be the most lawful and advised route for refugees to seek asylum.
She is now suffering at the hands of the Turkish authorities, and remains staunch in her love for her religion and the religion of her family.
Here is a letter she managed to send to the Riser Aba Al-Sadiq, and his statement upon reading her words.
We pray for the quick relief of Maryam and all her little friends, and all 104 unjustly imprisoned refugees at the Edirne Removal Centre.
