Eiad’s Diary (London, UK)

Eiad is a 31 year old dentist from Damascus. He reached the UK by smuggling himself onto the back of a lorry in late 2014, and since then he has been trying to find his place in the country’s capital city. Through his diaries we hear how his approach is to this new life is to ensure that he is always extremely busy – filling days with meetings, volunteer work, studies and speaking engagements – but finding a place to really call home is far from simple.
