Former NATO employee left Afghanistan looking for a peaceful life
Hassan Enayat comes from Afghanistan and was forced to leave his country because of insecurity and threats he received because he worked for the NATO as admin and programme support. With his pregnant wife and three sons he engaged into a difficult journey which included walking all night and being smuggled in a car and a boat. His wife sometimes felt sick during the journey due to the harsh conditions.
The family managed to reach Slovenia but were deported back to Croatia because of their nationality. Their initial goal was to reach Germany where they have relatives.
Hassan applied for asylum in Croatia and would like to continue to live and work in Croatia with his family. He just has his second interview and is now waiting for the answer.
His family is happy with their life in Croatia and would like to learn Croatian but Hassan feels that the classes that are currently delivered at the RCAS lack professionalism. He is very satisfied with the support provided by IOM and looks forward to attending Croatian language classes delivered by IOM.
Related to the living conditions at the RCAS he is generally satisfied, but would like to highlight that medical assistance and dental services are sometimes not sufficient and should be more frequent.
