From the Iraqi Mutual Aid Society,
"The privilege to apply for citizenship is hard-earned, conferred to immigrants and refugees only after they have met strict residency, language, and civic requirements, passed comprehensive background checks, and often spent thousands of dollars in legal fees.

As more of our refugee and immigrant families become eligible for citizenship, IMAS is leading an urgent initiative to support them through the complex process. Our Immigration Legal Services Program is managing a significant increase in naturalization cases and needs your help to assist more families."

This subject touches my heart for I just went through the process of applying for my citizenship. I was fortunate to afford the application fees, many chose between paying for a week worth of groceries or the application fees, the chose to feed their families. 

I invite you to shop our Bazaar( Souk) and help us raise money. My goal is to raise $400 to pay for 2 applications. 

Special thanks to L!VE cafe for their help. It sure takes a Village.
