Watching Syrian families struggle to survive is upsetting, hearing friends and neighbours comment on how we shouldn’t help because they pose a risk to us is devastating.
I look at the children in the images splashed across the media and I see my own children’s faces. I watch the fathers who want to be strong providers for their families succumb to their vulnerability and I see my own father and husband whom I know would die trying to keep us safe.
Please watch this viral video and allow it to put into perspective for you that just because it isn’t happening here doesn’t mean we can turn a blind eye.
My children have already been involved in supporting the families who will be arriving in our Region in the coming months. Please consider doing the same.
