by: Homayoon, an Afghan refugee in Belgium
My name is Homayoon.
I’m 16 years old and come from Afghanistan.
I arrived in Belgium when I was 13 years old.
I fled from my town because I had a lot of troubles there.
When I arrived here I didn’t know where my family was, because they fled with me, but on our way I lost them.
I succeeded in tracing them, they lived in extreme poverty in Kaboul.
With the help of Caritas we succeeded in getting all the papers for a visum to Europe.
But than remained the problem of the cost of our flight to Belgium.
Caritas told me of the M4M organisation.
We were so happy to hear that you could help us paying our ticket for the flight.
My mother, my brothers, my sister and myself want to thank you for this marvellous gift.
We also want to thank Caritas for helping us all the way long.
They arrived safely this morning in Zaventem and we are very happy that we are all together now and can begin to start a new life.
