Back in October 2021, Hannah Sabatia started some educational sessions for sanctuary seekers called ‘Tips to Healthy Eating with Hannah’. Hannah has shared her experiences and findings in this blog. She says “There is a great need for people to be reminded that eating healthy is part and parcel of their health and well-being journey. There are so many illnesses we can prevent by a change of lifestyle and awareness of what we are eating. For example the complications of diabetes and obesity.”


This material is part of the Covid Chronicles from the Margins project, funded by The Open University and the International Institute of Social Studies in the Hague. The project aims to highlight the impact of the pandemic on refugees, asylum seekers and undocumented migrants.
