Featured Life Story
Borris came to Manchester six months ago after having to leave his home in Namibia, his family and everything he knew behind. At Mustard Tree, Borris has finally found somewhere to feel safe, a sense of community and is hoping he will be able to train as a nurse in the future.

I didn’t know anyone or know the area at all. In the house there were four guys. No one spoke the same language. I was just left lonely and afraid in my room with nothing to do.
