I wrote about him here.
He’s been a long-standing friend of ours living in the Calais Jungle since we first started working there in 2015.
Well here he is in England….!
It makes my heart SWELL to see.
This week he left the temporary hostel accommodation where Asylum Seekers are first placed when they arrive to the UK, and moved to the shared accommodation he has been provided in Sheffield.
Here he waits for his interview with the Home Office to begin the process of claiming asylum.
If he is successful and his asylum is granted, this accommodation will be taken away and he will be able to work and start his life.
He will have 5 years before he must apply again.
Good luck Awad….here’s to a positive future, we love you!
