One Comment on “Threads from the Refugee Crisis”

  1. I’ve just read safelandia. I work for Unseen here in Bristol. I already, sadly, know all too well about the stories you published but seeing them in artistic form really helps relay the truth if the story for those who may have never come into contact with a refugee. I hope more people read your stories. It’s devastating, and the way people speak about these poor people makes me sick.
    I honestly feel hopeless sometimes when I see the way our institutions treat them. My work makes me grateful every day.
    Thank you
