Applicants Experiences

Survivors who have completed the application process with Caranua, detail their experiences in this section. As you will see from the individual ‘experiences’, some people choose to give some details about who they are, for example their name and their age, but others prefer to remain anonymous. However, all of the words are from the survivors. We will post more ‘experiences’ here on a regular basis.
