Care Concept Scholarship for Refugees: Anas' first report: Corona

Care Concept Scholarship for refugees(COVID-19) pandemic

Anas and the Coronovirus The first semester went as usual - students in the canteen chatted, lecture halls were overcrowded with students and there were never ending student parties. Until the shocking news came and ruined everything. News about a virus that affected the whole world. Accordingly, new security measures were decided by the TH Köln to minimize the spread of the virus. And so one sat alone in his depressing apartment and watched the lectures from home, far away from the crowded lecture hall.

Empty shelves in the stores, people were told to disinfect their hands constantly, but the disinfectants were mostly sold out. I thought to myself: "What is this educationally blind world we live in?” The worries at the beginning of the pandemic were not that a new virus was spreading, but rather that people would fill their pantry with food until it was full. My work as a tutor had to be paused for a long time. Many pupils did not come to the tutoring school anymore, because their parents were afraid for them. However, under consideration of many safety measures, the lessons may now be continued. Unfortunately, there are only very few pupils there.

Night shift It was a very tiring semester. You were not allowed to enter the university building, no more practice lessons and the internships were cancelled. We felt abandoned because we had to learn a lot of content on our own. The professors needed a lot of time to plan how best to conduct the exams online. Therefore several exams had to be postponed. The third semester has been postponed for a month to give the students time to recover from the exams.

Cologne Central Station After the hard work, recovery was much needed. The plan was to go on a trip to visit old friends, parents and old teachers. No matter where I was, everyone asked: "Tell me about yourself". I started to tell them everything and saw the pride in their eyes. The teacher said: "My work was not in vain”, my parents claimed: "This is exactly how I raised my son", friends said: "That's how I got to know you".

That's what I call a driving force.
