Parents Together For The Birth of Their Child


Zania made the tough journey from Syria to Greece with her 3 children and a fourth child on the way, wanting so badly to be with her husband again in Germany before the baby came. Unfortunately, the process to be with family again can be quite lengthy, and Zania found herself as a lone mother stuck in Greece facing the possibility of bringing a new child into the world without her husband there. Mobile Info Team was there for her family reunification procedure every step of the way, and our efforts ultimately made it possible for Zania to have her family all together again before the baby came.  By calling different asylum offices and advocating on her behalf, Mobile Info Team helped prevent unnecessary time apart from Zania’s husband, and her children with their father.

If Zania had been left without anyone advocating on her behalf, she could very well still be waiting in Greece, and would most likely have to give birth to her new child here. Most cases travelling to Germany wait nearly ten months to travel to their families, 4 months longer than the law allows for.  With the help of Mobile Info Team, Zania traveled after just 5 months. In the autumn of 2017, the family was together again.

Zania: “Honestly, Mobile Info Team helped me a lot. I told them my story – that I was pregnant and in a very bad situation. The caseworker on my case was very good, and I want to thank her personally very much. She helped me with each stage of my file. There is a big difference between Mobile Info Team and the other organizations. I am very thankful for all members of the Mobile Info Team, because they are helping cases just like me.”
