Torchlight procession to support Afghan boys, whose asylum applications have been denied.

 

Emilie Hansen, one of the participants in this project, is deeply involved in the situation of refugees in our area. This is why she has put a lot of effort into this, with the aim to prevent boys from Afghanistan, whose asylum applications have been denied, to be sent back to Afghanistan.  In November 2016 she organised a torchlight procession in Fosnavåg.  «I was shocked when I was informed about the denial» Emilie says. «One of the boys is my best friend, and I can not just sit and watch him being forced to return to a country in war. Now we wish to show them that they are not alone», Emilie says.
