After the Rain
The major idea of the publication ‘‘After the Rain’’ is to share different stories, quotations, and poems of refugees and asylum seekers. The stories are told by people from various countries with different experiences in Liverpool. All of them went through uncertainty and lack of control over their lives and the future.
Nowadays, there is a crucial problem of inadequate coverage of refugee crises by media and misrepresentation. It entails growing of scepticism associated with new immigrants crossing international borders. The problem is also about telling only bad stories and experience. Media do not cover the successful stories of refugees. However, in the project “After the rain” there are some stories about people who have succeded in the UK. For example, Dorkas Akeju has got the Order of British Empire. She has been honored by the Queen for her 35 years of working here.
Therefore, the mission of the project is to tell all kind of refugees’ stories: not only sad but also successful.
