The life of young asylum seekers in Indonesia often comes to a frozen halt, except time passes with each tick of the clock:
Days turn to weeks, then to years. They can’t get married or study…
Refugees can be detained arbitrarily and sent to immigration detention indefinitely, with no recourse to justice.
Mozhgan lives in fear of raids targeting places that refugees tend to live.
Refugees living in the community are not allowed to work, and accessing medical care is prohibitively expensive.
Furthermore, UN refugee cards aren’t accepted as ID, making basic things like getting a sim card, finding a place to live, opening a bank account, traveling by train, or entering a public event a major challenge.
“When you can’t do the most simple thing, how would you feel?”
