Muhammed dreams of joining a local football team while he searches for somewhere to sleep everynight

I often imagine what it would be like to be in the UK. To start life again. I used to play football on Mondays, go to work in the day, and look forward to the weekend with my friends. All of that was taken away from me when I had to leave home.

Now I sleep outside every night and I have no time to think about anything other than surviving each day.

One day, I hope to do the same things again – eat dinner with friends, join a local football team, maybe even meet someone. I still have big plans for my life, I just need a chance to start.
