"Sometimes we are treated as if we are all the same, but Boaz sees the differences in us."

“Before I came to Boaz, I was staying with different people. I slept on sofas and it was very difficult. I used to feel the cold and be so weak. I did not have any GP, I did not know how to get into the system. I was so scared and didn’t know who to trust.

A friend told me about Boaz, and they helped me a lot. I felt so relieved when Boaz found a house for me. It was the beginning of me coming out of my shell; I could start to be me."

"Boaz connected me to places where I can get help. Now I feel connected to things that I used to be scared of; I can communicate with anyone. Boaz sees my potential. They see the good in me and encourage me and push me to achieve. Now I feel free.

I want to go to college to study English and maths. If I am given status, I would also like to work. I would like to be a nurse or go back into catering. I worked in catering back at home. I also need to know where my kids are; if they are alive or passed. I don’t know where they are at all."

Treated as an individual

"Boaz is a good place. When here you feel safe; you feel at home. You find a family and you find help. Sometimes we are treated as if we are all the same, but Boaz sees the differences in each of us. I wish that every city in England could have a charity like Boaz. I miss it so much already. But we need to give other people in the same situation a chance too.”
