“I was a refugee” with Avtar Hunter-Singh

Podcast 17

As a church we believe it is right to respond to the European refugee crisis. One voice we haven’t heard much of is that of refugees themselves. Many are speaking about them, but we haven’t heard much from them. In this podcast, Dave speaks with a man who is not a refugee now, but was when he came to England in 1974, fleeing Uganda. This is Avtar’s story, one story from one refugee. He speaks very honestly about what that was like for him, what his story is, and how he feels now about his place in this society.

    What a powerful story – a reminder that behind the figures and the statistics being thrown around each person has a name, is part of a family. Thank you Avtar for being willing to share your story so honestly and openly. You are a remarkable man
