During her stay in Rwanda and Uganda, Eefje Blankevoort will do research to find a child refugee who will come to the Netherlands to live.
Faisal (example in this story) was born in Ethiopia. While in a refugee camp in Kenya, he and his family were selected to emigrate to the Netherlands to build a new life. The family had been living in the camp for a few years already. In ‘New’ we follow Faisal during his struggle to unravel the secrets a new language and culture hold and to adapt to everything new. For the first time he feels snow, tastes Dutch food and speaks Dutch. But above all, he tries to find his own place in that strange, new world. Would you like to know more?
