When law student Natasha Al-Hariri, like many other Danes in the beginning of September, went to the Copenhagen Central Station to help the many refugees who came pouring in across the Danish border, she had an overwhelming experience.

She helped a man, who had not been in touch with his family for weeks, charge his phone. When his phone was powered up, he found 3,700 unanswered calls and messages from his worried family and he just broke down. Inspired by this and to get more perspective on the refugees through their own stories, DR sent a crew to the border between Serbia and Croatia and Passau, Germany and set up a phone booth from which Syrian refugees could call their families for free.
