Bayt UK: Resettlement during the COVID-19 pandemic
The Resettlement scheme, the only safe and legal route for refugees to enter the UK, has been suspended since March. While the Coronavirus crisis has brought uncertainty to everyone’s life, it particularly affected the Syrian families who were due to arrive just days after all international flights were halted. Abdulrhman speaks to some of these families to understand what their life has been like since the start of the pandemic. He also interviews Hannah Feldman from Sponsor Refugees about the response of the UK government to this issue.
