Health, distraction and integration – the story of how Sayed ran a marathon
Sayed loves to compete and participates in races as often as he can. As an asylum-seeker, he is waiting for his application to be processed. Running makes time go by easier and it helps him integrate into the Swedish society.
As a prelude to World Refugee Day in Sweden, UNHCR organized a pop-up philharmonic concert for passers-by in central Stockholm. The concert was performed by child refugees and asylum-seekers from El Sistema Sweden Dream Orchestra.
