On the 07/07/08 I was asked if I could give a speech to a group of visiting trustees about how the Red Cross Refugee Unit has help me as an Asylum Seeker in Glasgow and my achievements as a volunteer. This is what I said:
When I came to the UK, I did not know about the Red Cross and what they do. I was referred here by my lawyer to use the Tracing & messaging Service.
But before I came…
I was in sorrow and all alone. I used to have bad thoughts, suicidal ones. I saw my life flash across the sky so many times and I felt so afraid. Police kept on picking me up from different places but I did not know how I got there. I did not care about anyone else but me. I prayed to God all the time, begging him to take my life when was sleeping. But he did not.
