"We are journalists who are working under pressure from governments or in conflict zones. We are pursuing facts which people need. When violence repeats itself, it becomes a part of our lives and becomes normal. It became my handicap. When I have joined the ECPMF family I felt the solidarity there. After six months in Leipzig I found the opportunity to clear my head and now I can see all the colours of life and they are sharper than before. Thanks a lot for all the things the ECPMF did for the other fellows and me. Thanks to my new ECPMF family."
