So I started my first intake interviews a couple of days ago, and began taking clients of my own. The intake interviews are quick 30-minute initial interviews, in which we find out basic info about the refugees and whether or not their resettlement case is strong enough for us to take. If the case is strong enough, meaning if they have any dire needs (legal, physical, violence, torture, medical, gender etc.) and are at critical risk in Egypt, then we schedule follow-up appointments to gather all of the information we need to write a testimony to the UNHCR or the IOM. Scheduling intakes and follow-ups has been hectic here because of the influx of new interns and the lack of space at the office.
