ILAP helped me and my family to become proud Americans we are today. I arrived in Portland, Maine from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, a country which is responsible for more than five million displaced immigrants around the world, and more than six million dead since the year 1990. I was fortunate to come out of this country, where hundreds of innocent women are being raped every day.
I didn't have any immigration papers and was not allowed to work when I arrived here in the U.S.A, but ILAP came to my rescue and helped me secure my immigration status through its pro-bono immigration program. Due to ILAP’s help, I was able to work while pursuing my education. Consequently, now I have a Masters degree, a Certificate of graduate study, a Bachelor’s degree, and an Associate degree. For this, I count it a privilege to be an American.
As I serve in my community by paying taxes and volunteering my time and resources to better our community, I am also aware that contributing to this cause will be of great help. Please consider a minimum monetary donation of $25 or more to this campaign. Your donation will go a long way in helping people in a situation like I was in.
