Mustard Tree - another day

Published: 17 Sep 2013

Session 2 with more heartbreaking stories

This was my next session at the Mustard Tree base in Ancoats. Although better prepared I was no less moved to hear the recounted life stories of my subjects. Harrowing would be an understatement for some of the clients. Others, those seeking political asylum have travelled a long road frought with danger and seperation from their loved ones. It can't be emphasised enough how Mustard Tree and the volunteers embrace these poor souls and offer a shining light after their dark and uncertain journeys.
