The Refumade initiative allowed the migrants involved to learn helpful skills and earn some cash to supplement meagre cash reserves. But critically they had a place of support and welcome where they could come and spend time with each other. It offered some purpose. It was a comfort. It was an escape from their crowded and often uncomfortable living conditions. There are few other places where they could spend time. There were a lot of laughs.
“We often saw women arriving at the Centre downcast, uncertain, demotivated and we saw over a short period of time how they transformed. They looked more confident, more outgoing, happier.”
