Today we hear from an asylum seeker from Honduras who fled to England in fear of his life.
For his own safety we are not able to give his full name. He tells his harrowing story below:
“My trip to this nation has been to save my life and that of my family, which is my 3-year-old son, my wife, and I.
We had to leave Honduras since our lives were in danger.
One day, some people came to my house to leave me a mobile phone and told me in a threatening tone: “They're going to call you, you answer.”
A few minutes later they called, they told me that I had to pay them and that if I didn't pay them, they were going to kill my family and me, that they already knew where I lived, the school where my son was and where my wife worked.
A few days later, when I went down to the car park to go to church, I found my car damaged so I knew that the threat was real.
Unfortunately the police were not able to guarantee my safety. Because of this, I had to leave my country, where my life and that of my family are in danger.”
Attached is an example of this man’s amazing art work. You can see what a desperate situation this young family find themselves in. They are so grateful to our volunteers who make them feel welcome but they are very fearful for what the future holds.
