To be a Refugee

"When people speak about refugees, we have to take into account that the refugees have stories, they are people, they have emotions, they have feelings. At the end of the day, it's not about protection or getting a refugee status or getting documentation. It's about leading a normal life, about being a person, with dignity, to have a family and build a future."

These are some of the reflections shared by Goitom Yosief, from Eritrea, in this excellent short documentary on the life of asylum seekers here in Malta. In the seven years he worked with JRS Malta, Goitom was responsible for the school-outreach programme and other awareness-raising activities.
