Azeem Khan, Immigration Clinic Navigator

Born into a philanthropic family in Guyana, Azeem engaged in humanitarian work from an early age. As a teen, he worked promoting HIV/AIDS awareness with a non-profit called Artist in Direct Support. Azeem fled Guyana in fear for his life but continued his HIV/AIDS work in New York at the AIDS Center of Queens County and then The Alliance for Positive Change, serving as an advocate for survivors of domestic violence, substance use, and mental health challenges. Azeem began his journey with CBST checking in volunteers during our in-person clinics and then heading downstairs to work on his own asylum application – an application that was granted 20 years after his arrival in the US! He is proud to stand as a lighthouse to guide new friends to a safe shore the way he was guided when he came to CBST.”
