"I last saw my daughter when she was four’" says Marjorie. Marjorie was arrested in Uganda for helping women to learn their rights. After enduring extreme torture, she escaped and boarded a flight to the UK, leaving her daughter, Sweetney, behind. ‘"I arrived nearly dead,"’ Marjorie remembers, "‘but they didn’'t give me asylum. I was sent to a detention centre’". ‘Naomi describes the conditions of her 10 month long stay in a detention centre as ‘unlivable’ revealing that she "didn'’t have enough food to feed my child’."
