25 Year Old Man From South Sudan Seeks Safety for Family

I’ve been here for so long now and I just don’t understand what is happening. I came to Europe to seek safety.

My father is dead and I left my mother and younger brothers and sisters behind in South Sudan. I’m scared for them and I hoped that I could help them to come to Europe by coming here first but I am stuck.

I want a stable life, I’m 25 and I have plans and dreams. I can’t wait forever to start my life. I want to finish my education, and to see my family again. Now, I don’t speak to them that often because I don’t know how to tell them what my life is like now. In Africa there is an image that Europe is a safe and good place.

I also thought I would be safe in Europe, but I am not.” Written by Asim – currently living in Calais
