Refugees 29/11/18

What does it mean to be a refugee? To lose everything – home, country, friends, family. To gamble everything on the hope of a new life, somewhere alien and possibly hostile. To try to hold on to something of who you are and where you came from in spite of everything you have had to leave behind. An eye-opening and heartbreaking selection of Refugees’ stories from around the world.
