On Tuesday morning, during consultations at the asylum center, I meet Brahim. In his file, I read that during his escape route from North Africa to Belgium, he jumped from a high wall and broke one of his vertebrae. Two years have passed, but Brahim still has a lot of pain in his back. He is told every time that the pain is no longer related to the fracture itself, which (according to a recent CT scan) has now healed. He was referred to a physiotherapist and given pain medication, but nothing helped.
