Tandrima joined Mustard Tree after fleeing India as an asylum seeker and settled here in January 2018. Tan bravely shared her story of her journey, her drive for change and her hopes for the future as she waits in hope for her asylum decision.
“In India I suffered domestic violence and religious persecution in my marriage. For so long I stayed because I didn’t know I deserved better. Once things started happening to my daughters, I knew I had no choice but to leave. I had to leave with my youngest daughter December 2017 and leave my eldest one behind. I couldn’t take both if I had I wouldn’t have rescued any of them. It was the hardest decision I have ever made. I can only just talk about it out loud now, I couldn’t talk about it at all before,” says Tandrima.
