5:28 pm
a journey really listening to this and listening to this day she's an idea of a text in cooma kept this is somewhere that you've been visiting you've been studying for the last decade when you first heard of the idea what was your reaction i thought it was a great idea so it was a fantastically dear because it's some could. actually actually plague me that we have a conception of refugees as hopeless and yet actually one of the most well studied terms in the would there be an academic's of greece which is what my so going i was one of the first few people to go with. it if it holds you because you actually see you with a devotee. rendered prayer and that's what was taught x is going to do because what it's going to do is it's going to speak about. please but seems to be all of this
5:29 pm
but it's going to speak about success and it's also going to talk about you with resilience the human fighting spirit in the worst of temperatures sometimes in the biggest of despair so i want to give our viewers who are not to feel you're familiar with. a little taste from our online audience of what life is like there this is spread who says could come as a camp made up mainly of young people about sixty percent of the population is under eighteen years of age in the camp residents are inspired by the tough life in the camp to identify other coping mechanisms i.e. small businesses fashion sports performing arts and education now with that said we got a video comment from someone who explains that the camp has changed over the years this is a delight he mirror a and he is now in cookoo my he's an independent journalist and he's there for this weekend have a listen to what he told the stream committed you come in with the. amount
