In Arabic, Sabah Mohamed helps a woman fill out paperwork to receive a bag of food at the weekly food pantry. Sabah, a 26-year-old Sahrawi woman, is in training for a new job as an immigration lawyer at Tharsis Betel, a non-profit organization founded by Adulama Missionary Church that supports refugees with daily resources and legal services in Jerez, Spain.
As a Sahrawi refugee from the Western Sahara, Sabah identifies with other Sahrawis and refugees, because she also knows what it’s like to lose everything in a place that was once home and to flee to an unfamiliar country. This is why she desires to support these people by providing resources and legal services.
