My roots

Hassan & Asma, Peckham, South London
Hassan & Asma moved from the Sudan in 1969 as newlyweds, so that Hassan could take up a job at Kings College Hospital. Hassan remembers farming with his father, watering the broad beans, wheat and chick peas. Now both Asma and Hassan love gardening – especially growing those same broad beans!
