Support stateless family

Update posted by Lital Ben Haim On Jan 06, 2022

During December we participated in the Pop-Up art festival in Nicosia. We had the opportunity to present our handmade goodies for sale. In these strange times of pandemic not many people came, but it was OK.

In the photo: our cart shop on the street.

Earlier this week, after waiting almost two months for it, our appointment to migration office had arrived and we submitted the applications for Refugee residency card and Refugee travel document (passport).

As all procedures in Cyprus take time, the documents will take few months to be ready.

Our life after receiving the new status is pretty much the same, but our mind is more peaceful. Now it's a question of a when and not an if.

Wishing you all a happy year, with a focus on physical and mental health in those crazy times, and plenty of joyful moments, in nature and with our loved ones.

Lital and Vinas

During our time as asylum seekers in Cyprus, out of them 10 months of homelessness, extreme hardship that is presented in the documentary film ASYLUM Love has no borders, media interviews worldwide, a fundraiser called Support Stateless Family that enables open hearted people to support our journey, and basically allowed us to survive and carry on, and our followers know that recently we were ready to give it all up and leave Cyprus and the pending asylum application. And then, after we broke down, light started to shine through the cracks: we moved to another mountainous village, a change that lifted our spirits, here we are more social and more active, we walk in the nature and we sing... And then suddenly, after waiting for 2 years, 9 months and 4 days, we were granted a refugee status.

Hey all!

When I first edited this fundraiser I set the rewards at a pricey range, thinking that as much as want to give something in return to each and everyone of you, since all I have is my beautiful hand made crafts, that take a lot of time to create, I should offer it to only some of our supporters.

Now I lowered the prices, making my crafts available to everyone who wishes to have a souvenir from us. Many items are just 15-20 euro including shipping.

If you can purchase directly from me, it would be better and then I can offer combined shipping and reduced fees on my side.

You can send money directly to my Wise account, if you are joining Wise, please use my link: https://wise.com/invite/asd/litalb2

Add me as a friend by my email [email protected] (I accept Euro)

For communication you can send me an email or follow and message via Instagram

Thank you! I would love to clear my inventory and send my crafts across the universe 💫

Love,

Lital

It's been one year since we shared our incredible story with the world, a story of an Israeli and Iranian couple, seeking a political asylum in Cyprus, struggling to survive, just to be together.
Over the past year, we were also interviewed for this 45 minutes documentary film by Reeltime Pictures.
The film tells our story of struggles, hardship and love, and is now available to watch on streaming and to download: https://timetraveltv.com/programme/550
(Some of the amount paid will go to our fundraiser Support Stateless Family).
We are grateful for this opportunity that was given to us, to share our hearts and the predicament we are in, hoping that as this film speards out, a solution to our situation will come.
Please watch it and let us know what you think, and share it so it would reach more people.
Together we'll let love win 💕

We were given the opportunity to be on a wonderful Ulyces (France) series about couples, and we are grateful and very excited about that.

Our episode is showing a piece of our life, our love and our struggle. Filmed in our room and in the mountainous village we live in.

We are honored to share this short video with you:

Future of love S01 E05 - Lital and Vinas

Alll we want for Christmas is a place to call home 💔

This morning we received a message from one of our supporters saying that she she just received some unexpected Christmas money, and decided to pass it to us, with a blessing of happy Christmas and that love will win.

Our hearts filled with joy and gratitude!

This is a simple gesture from someone, who we never met in person!

It lights up our day and our holiday season to know that we have the support of kind, open hearted people who believe in love and in our cause- that a couple of Israeli and Iranian can fulfill their border-free love even though we cannot enter Israel or Iran.

We offer beautiful hand made crafts that we make as rewards for donations, check them out at the rewards section on this fundraiser.

Any amount of donation would help, even 1 euro!

Spend time with your loved ones and appreciate all you have 💓

Thank you and Merry Christmas,

Vinas and Lital

We are on a journey to find a place we can call home.

This is a process that takes time, and energy and tons of stress and patience.

We are grateful for having good hearted beings backing us up. We would like to express our appreciation, and to say thanks.

Thank you 🙏

To everyone of you who sent kind and supportive words, who engaged in our story and posts, who donated to our fundraiser.

You helped us back on our feet, relieved us from some of life's worries, encouraged us to stick to our way and to hold our heads up.

You are the wind beneath our wings.

Thank you for joining us on our journey to fullfil border-free love.

This is history on the making. This is a revolution of love.

Our struggle isn't over, but we believe that together we'll let love win.

And we cannot make it without you, so from the bottom of our hearts, thank you ❤

Lital and Vinas

Many people ask us how we survive without the minimal support from the welfare system? how do we get food without receiving food coupons?

The truth is that we wouldn't if we weren't skilled in survival. We foraged and hunted from the wild and we could make shelter and set up fire for cooking even in the pouring rain.

Like street cats, we dumpster dived and gathered scraps from the market's floor at the end of the day.

We learned about edible plants and mushrooms.

We rely on food donations from humanitarian organizations. We agree to receive help when it is offered to us.

Not simple for people like us, who were always able to care for themselves.

Help us out of this impossible situation. It's painful to be so occupied with survival, and watch our life passing by.

We want to start a home and a family, to have the basic rights that every human being deserves in the world.

We are Vinas and Lital, an Iranian and Israeli couple, prevented from entering our home countries, in a search for a country that accepts who we are.

If you believe in love and in human rights, support our cause via our fundraiser-

Support stateless family.

Yours,

Vinas and Lital
