Escape to Freedom
There are more than 15 million refugees all around the world. They flee from war, violence and oppression. Pregnant women, children and sick people are many among them.
Annually Bulgaria is addressed with less than 1000 refugee applications. Notwithstanding, conditions for registration, admission and accommodation of asylum seekers in Bulgaria are completely inadequate. Instead of being accommodated in reception centers, refugees are confined in detention centers for illegal immigrants with Ministry of Interior.
Bulgarian law does not provide any deadline when they have to be released.
