Our Children's Meeting has been learning about refugees.

16 Aug 2021

The children of Brighton Quaker Meeting have made an on-line banner about refugees. We have been learning about how hunger and war can make life very difficult and how people will seek refuge and safety elsewhere.  Quakers have a long history of helping those affected by hunger and displaced by persecution and war.  This banner is rooted in the conviction that there is that of God in every person. Quakers across Britain are working to welcome people seeking sanctuary. 

If you want to learn more about refugees there are many useful resources here https://refugeeweek.org.uk/ or here https://www.quaker.org.uk/our-work/social-justice/migration

If you want to read some accounts of child refugees, why and how they reached this country, you will find some here https://separatedchild.org/our-work/child-refugee-stories/ Sadly, some people even felt threatened by a puppet refugee.
