And miraculously, just like your God—the smuggler—had told you, you get a lift to the police station, straight to the Refugee Camp, or to the Ministry of Home Affairs to declare yourself… you think—wish—it was your time to relax. But no, there is much more coming your way.
Travel with a young refugee from the Democratic Republic of Congo on a journey of resilience and growth. He lives in two refugee camps. He strives to get an education and to empower himself and his peers in the camp. Disruptions and depressing situations are daily realities—until they are not. Entangled in the “refugee life”, burdensome bureaucracy and inhospitable immigration laws, is there Hope for a young refugee?
