Wasi: Afghans are respectful people. People often think Afghans are extreme or violent people, but we’re not. People think women aren’t respected in Afghan households but they are highly respected.
Florence: For the most part, clients are very eager to learn more about life and culture in the United Kingdom. It must be comforting to know that, despite some differences, we have much in common.
Merzia: It is very different for the clients, the place they’re at, whether it is emotionally or physically they feel everything. Most people might not understand what being a refugee is like but there are some people who know exactly what it feels like. Waking up every morning in a completely different world, meeting different people, culture shocks, society itself, and everything else that would seem different. I think that our clients are adjusting to the different life here pretty well given their circumstances.
Fuchsia: They are all individuals, coming from a wide variety of different circumstances and backgrounds.
