University students in a refugee center

Stockholm, Sweden

Every two weeks a group of young men from the Lärkstadens Studiecentrum visit refugees in “Förvaret,” a center for persons who have come to Sweden in search of asylum but who, for various reasons, are to be returned to their country of origin or sent to another country. While awaiting law court judgments and the papers needed to travel, they are not allowed to leave the center.

The young men from Lärkstaden spend a few hours there with the refugees, speaking with them about their problems, or simply entertaining the children with games. The ethnic diversity of the students has facilitated visiting people from many countries. The students taking part come from various religious denominations. The visits are sponsored by Caritas Stockholm and other Swedish NGO’s.
