I am asking for support for the Patricia Fleming Foundation. My law firm represents many refugees who suffer from torture and displacement. But our clients have many needs beyond legal ones. We provide shelter and food to every refugee client we represent so they don’t become homeless, their kids are nourished, and emergency medical needs are covered. The funds for this don’t come from our law firm. We rely on private donations. Jayne Fleming is the attorney who leads this charge. Examples of our clients who need more than legal support are from Syria and Jordan and Lebanon and are torture survivors with extreme mental health pathologies. Many are children, who are suffering war trauma or are victims of gender-based violence, including those at risk of “honor killing” in retaliation for seeking access to justice in their countries. “Although they are from many different places, our clients are all victims of sexual, gender-based violence or other forms of torture,” said Fleming. “As a result, they are all in need of international protection.” https://www.cvt.org/news-events/press-releases/center-victims-torture-honors-reed-smith-human-rights-attorney-jayne. Please say thank you this holiday season for your good fortune by making a donation to the Patricia Fleming Foundation. You can rest assured that your money will be used to help those who need it.
