Lost in Copenhagen

(Part of my homeless project)
Amina is from Sweden. She is 26 years old. She gets help to shoot heroin in her neck, as the veins in her arms has been shot up too much. She charms everybody with her smile and laugh, and mostly, just by looking at her, you don't notice she's an addict. But on her bad days....
A few days ago she told me: "I'm going to die in Copenhagen"
Since she is a foreigner in Denmark, there's not much help she can get here. Even the shelters turn her away.
