Two refugees spend their waiting time on repairing old bikes. It makes them happy to see the smile of children when they get a bike to play with.
Biland Shabak from Iraq and Poyenda Alimmy from Afghanistan are asylum seekers in Dianalund asylum center. They have decided to taking advantage of the waiting time to do useful things. They have – with help from the Red Cross office – cleaned and painted a room, where they repair broken bicycles and sell them for a cheap price.
New Times asked them about their feeling, when helping the other refugees:
“We feel happy when we help them, especially when we see a smile on the children’s faces when they get a bike, because we provide bikes to refugees cheaply” they say.
Asylum seekers welcome anyone who wants to help and donate a bike even if it’s very old. You can be sure that it will to bring joy to the hearts of refugees.
