Ana had rented a room for herself and her 15 year old son, but because of her extremely
unpleasant landlord she didn’t feel safe and had to leave.
Ana was born and bred in Amsterdam, her parents came from Ghana.
For 2 years now she has been living with her father during weekdays and with her sister in
