I read this today and needed to share it:
“The other day, I was filling out a referral form with a young homeless refugee who had accessed our advice service, to try to get him a bed in a hostel. One of the questions on the form was about whether he was in touch with his family. When I asked him, he replied that his family had all been killed back in Eritrea, where he was from. He then tried to convey to me through noises and gestures, what it was like to live with such terror as he had come from on a daily basis.”

The whole article is here on page 3. It is written with the facts shouting out but with such compassion. JB.
