For the past several months, the infamous refugee camp in Calais has been home for a young Afghani boy. His daily experiences and his feelings about life in the Jungle are reflected in his letters to his parents, which paint a picture of the inescapable situation of hopelessness.

The young man keeps on repeating his mantra : ‘‘Soon, I’ll be in England’’.
