Why They Come

 Asylum Seekers and Refugees take dangerous journeys because they must: they are fleeing persecution, torture, death because of their religious beliefs, race, political views or sexual orientation.


Most will have travelled with only the clothes they wear and will have exhausted all their financial resources in the journey. They have none of the things we take for granted.


Many will have mental and physical health problems caused by their deprivation and previous treatment.


All would rather be in their own countries with their families and friends in a familiar environment. They come because they must.
