Young people and unaccompanied refugees – including those from Afghanistan, Syria and Eritrea – find a home for the time being in the initial reception centre run by the Sozialdienst katholischer Frauen e.V. Köln. They usually stay for a period of three weeks to three months. One key to overcoming language barriers is having fun together while dancing, singing or playing video games. So the joy of our visit was all the greater.
