The objective of the joint project ”Improve the reception of asylum-seeking children from Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia and other countries” between Save the Children Sweden and the European Fund for Refugees, is to ensure adequate care arrangements for unaccompanied asylum-seeking and refugee children and youth in Swedish communities, schools and health-care services. ‘På flykt på egen hand’ (On the run all alone) is part of the material presented at a Seminar held in Stockholm 17 December 2010, which concerns the hardships and dilemmas faced by children and young people seeking asylum in Sweden. Save the Children works with seriously traumatised children and attempts to restore normalcy to their lives.
