How did refugees experience the Covid-19 lockdown?

Reflecting on psychological experiences of COVID lockdowns, the refugee community CodeYourFuture revealed amazing stories of resilience. 

 

Despite their double isolation, separated both from their new community by lockdown and alienated their old community by geography, the group saw it as an opportunity to block out the negativity of the 24 hour news cycle, reconnect with nature, begin new studies and focus on their own growth.

 

In their eyes it became a chance to form a protective cocoon around themselves and embrace it as a moment in which to be reborn.
