Entry Description

Rezwan is a young man who left his home in Afghanistan to find a better life in Europe. We met him in Belgrade, Serbia at a park where Refugee's gather to meet smugglers who help them cross borders. We asked him for a brief interview, and he agreed as long as we didn't show his face. This is what he told us.
