Mark- A Migrant from Senegal
My name is Mark (real Names witheld) I came 25 years old and I am from Senegal. I migrated to Italy about 5 years ago. I left my country for the possibility of having a better life. I arrived Italy and was able to request for international protection which was rejected and I had to seek for appeal. I was granted permit of stay for humanitarian purpose. But I was not able to get a job after I left the project for asylum seekers. I had no one to help and it was early January during the winter season. It was terrible living on the street as some of the people I knew could not accommodate me. I was on the street for over a week until I came in contact with the Peoples Immigration Network (PIN)
I went to the district office in Genova to ask for help after been rejected on two occasions and this time around they told me there may be a possibility for me to get help but it all depends on the association if they will accept me because I am a male. I waited for the help to come and when it came i was introduced to two black men like me as the people from the association that will be assisting me. I was surprised as I was expecting some white people to come. At first I lost hope again but after they introduced themselves to me and interviewed me, they told me they were going to help me. I was giving a place to stay, and provisions were also made for my daily upkeep. I was also introduced to someone that helped me to secure a job which I did for about 3 weeks. Through the help of PIN i was also able to secure another job that helped me to where I am today. I will always be grateful to PIN for the support they rendered when all hope was lost. I am indeed grateful.
