Tashu, 37 years old from Khartoum, has been living in a bureaucratic limbo for months in Greece. I met Tashu at the Sudanese refugee centre in Athens and we have spent hours talking and always looked up at his peaceful inner strength which he confided comes from following the faith of Islam. Tashu has been a victim of beatings, verbal abuse, including 22 days in prison for having stolen some bread out of hunger. "I come from Sudan. I escaped. I really don't feel good about this time in Greece. Attention to suffering - we don't have a place to stay, we cannot work, we sleep on the street. We suffer. How can we build a life? How can we be strong? Tashu, Athens.
