“I am extremely lucky”

The testimony of an Irish student after an encounter with a refugee:


‘I was heartbroken by Filimon’s story. Filimon is a 16 year old refugee who lives in London. He had to leave his country without his family because of war. This is heart-breaking to me, as I started to think how I would feel if I was forced to leave my country without my family and how I would survive by myself at this age. Filimon’s story is inspiring; he made a life for himself in an unknown country, has friends and survives. I am extremely lucky.’
