From Bangladesh’s makeshift camps where the world’s fastest growing refugee crisis is unfolding, to Syria where, for nearly eight years, war has left millions needing aid to stay alive. From the thousands of cars and makeshift dwellings that house the homeless in our own country, to the remote communities living with entrenched disadvantage.
Caught up in these precarious situations are resourceful, resilient, brave and talented people. They’ve needed to be to escape the bullets and survive horrors and hurdles that are hard to imagine.
Like anyone, they deserve safety, wellbeing and to be treated with dignity. We can all help with that.
Let’s make 2019 the year of:
More empathy, less indifference.
More hope, less hatred.
More impartiality, less judgement.
More opportunity, less inequality.
More unity, less division.
Let’s all share a new year’s resolution to make the world a kinder and better place.
