Hello Adel!

How are you?

Please find attached a document (in arabic) that should lighten the situation, it is offered on the website of the Fl├╝chtlingsrat Berlin and called Information for asylum seekers in camps in Berlin.

Do not hesitate to let me know if that was not what you wanted.
Best regards.
