One of my best friends and most faithful blog readers was accepted as a refugee just a few days ago by the UNHCR.

This acceptance comes after lengthy imprisonment and torture as well as a year in a refugee camp in another African country.

Now that he is accepted the UNHCR will provide accommodation and food and start the process of resettling him in a third country.

When the rest of the asylum seekers got the news everyone was so excited. It was so cool to see how happy they could be for him even though their own cases are so uncertain. Sometimes you really can see the best of people when they are in a difficult situation.
