Watch Aden’s Journey: Episode Five

Week 5 of Aden's Journey
I left liked you asked me. But it hasn’t gone well. Things are really dangerous here. I tried to go through North Africa, but I was captured.
It is a prison here. There are hundreds of men. I’m not sure if I can escape.
Please, not my phone. Oh, please, not my phone.
Time for you to talk, my friend. Can I call my parents?
Who helped you to cross the border? Nobody.
Tell me. Who helped you?
Stop! Get back.

Last week we heard Aden’s father telling him to continue his journey even though Aden felt settled and happy in his alternative care placement.
