Description

With help from the "CURANT" project connecting refugees with locals for house-sharing, Wasil, a young Afghan refugee, has a buddy: Bente, a young man in Antwerp, Belgium. Not only has Wasil found a new home, but Bente has a chance to learn about Afghan culture. They get on so well, they are continuing their house-share even though the buddy project officially ended after one year.
