The current refugee situation is not easy – for any of us. Yet there’s no sense in giving in to a feeling of resignation.
Just a few years ago, we teamed up with the Malteser Hilfsdienst in Freiburg Diocese to carry out a very successful project. That’s why it’s a pleasure to work with the same organisation again in a new refugee integration project … called: “Through the eyes of refugees!”
It involves refugees looking at their new home through the lens of a camera – often picking out things we no longer notice. We spent two days with the project participants and got to know them more closely. These are people who have travelled a long way … people who have experienced terrible things.
This is our way of giving them a little bit of normality and support as they embark on their new lives.
Together, we can do it!
