Hello! I can’t imagine the horrors you must be running from. I can only hope that your new life here is a happy and safe one. I know there has been a lot of bad press about the ‘migrant crisis’, attempting to dehumanising your struggle, but please believe that people do want to help you, and don’t want to shut you out, and want to welcome you.
