Kuto stared out at the desert landscape, his heart heavy with sadness. It felt like a lifetime ago since he had been home in Africa, surrounded by loved ones. Now he was alone in Saudi Arabia, working as a labourer on a construction site. The days were long and hard, and Kuto often found himself thinking about his life back home.

He missed the sound of laughter filling the air, the smell of fresh food cooking on an open fire. He even missed his afro haircut, which he had to shave off when he arrived in Saudi Arabia. Everything here was so different – the culture, the language, the food. It was all so unfamiliar and it made Kuto feel very lonely.

The only thing that kept him going was knowing that one day he would return home to Africa and be reunited with his family once again
