Please, let Ahmed finish his PhD in the UK

My name is Alvin and I am asking you to help me. My colleague and friend Ahmed is a PhD candidate in Computer Science at the University of Sheffield.  After completing a Masters at the same University he started his doctorate but he is now in a position where he might not be allowed to continue his studies

Ahmed is from Mosul, Iraq, a city torn apart by the presence of ISIS, he has lost his dad and his family has been greatly affected by the occupation.

He was detained for ten days by the Home Office, treated like a criminal, with limited facilities. His case is still not certain - and we still fear he may be deported.

Ahmed applied for an PhD extension but before the University could finish processing this request he was detained by the Home Office... He is facing deportation at any time.

All his friends and colleagues know him for the kind-hearted person he is, a selfless friend who has always been there for everyone, in any circumstance.  

Let's support him by asking Amber Rudd and the Home office to reconsider his case and allow him to complete his studies. 

Please consider donating on the crowdfunding page to help Ahmed with the solicitor costs, estimated to be £15k by the lawyers. Thank you so much!
