Refugees in Hungary are helping to look after the elderly in a care home, proving that they can be an asset to a country that has largely closed itself to asylum seekers.
And the work is mutually beneficial: by helping the elderly, it is easier for the refugees to put their past traumas behind them. It is also personally rewarding:
“I like this work,” says Radwa Al Nazer, 29, from Damascus, Syria. “It requires a lot of patience and kindness but sometimes I want to cry when I see I have made a patient happy.”
