The theme of Refugee Week 2019, ‘You, me and those who came before’, is an invitation to explore the lives of refugees – and those who have welcomed them – throughout the generations.
People escaping war and persecution have been welcomed by communities in the UK for hundreds of years, and their stories and contributions are all around us. From the Jewish refugees of the 1930s to people fleeing Vietnam in the 1970s, Kosovans in the 1990s to those arriving today; they are part of who we all are.
Refugee Week gives us an opportunity to do something positive. That’s why we think it’s a great time to do the Ration Challenge! Once again this year, the Ration Challenge community will be working together to change hearts and minds at home, and raise vital funds to support refugees and other vulnerable communities overseas.
Why not join us today?
