Refugee café Welcoming strangers

The town of Olten has a café that is specially for refugees and asylum seekers. Margaret Stringer, who runs the church-funded café, can relate to the migrant experience, as she came to Switzerland from Britain 16 years ago.

Asylum laws are in the process of being tightened in Switzerland, and this is also matched by a hardening in people’s attitudes toward asylum seekers. (Raffaella Rossello, swissinfo.ch)
