Qanon: I think I know where I’m headed, says Qanon after a rough start to the year
Posted March 11, 2020 18:17:56A little over a month ago, Qanon left his home in Sydney to start a new life in Queensland.
His wife, Yvonne, and their two young daughters were among a group of refugees who had arrived from Cambodia to live with them.
“I think the reason I moved here is because it was just so difficult, I think, to be away from my family,” he said.
“We’re just so close to Australia, I’m not going to be able to see them [my kids] all the time.”
You can’t miss it, you can’t look at it, and you can never really miss it.
“For Qanon, who has been a refugee for the past eight years, the transition from Australia to Queensland was particularly difficult.”
It’s just so hard, to have people around you and the family, it’s hard,” he told ABC News.”
And I don’t know how I’m going to deal with the reality of the situation that I’m in.
Qanon said he had experienced depression and anxiety as a refugee and his family’s arrival was the first time he had seen them in two years.””
There’s people who are here, who are coming from Cambodia, who have a new family, who come from Laos, who haven’t seen their family in nine months.”
Qanon said he had experienced depression and anxiety as a refugee and his family’s arrival was the first time he had seen them in two years.
“They’re the reason that I moved to Queensland, I feel like I’m finally seeing my family and being with them,” he added.
“For me, I’ve always known I needed to go somewhere to be close to my family, to feel like they’re there, that they’re happy and safe.”
Qasrul is a community of refugees with more than 6,000 people who live in its townhouses, houses and small community centre.
