Mary said "I wanted to visit RASA today to say thank you for the work they do on behalf of refugees and asylum seekers in Wakefield. They do an outstanding job in supporting some of the most vulnerable people in our community. I was also delighted to meet Masoud and Maureen and congratulate them on securing OISC accreditation for RASA. The years ahead are going to be tough for asylum seekers and refugees as the government cuts begin to bite. The work of organisations like RASA have never been more important."
