‘I wish someone had told me how tough it is to find a home in Switzerland, we were not prepared for that. We had to wait for 3 months in temporary accommodation until we finally managed to get the house we want. I don’t speak German so finding a home by myself was out of the question'Sanjay, 50 years old
