I've just been to a tea party organized by Refugee Action [link] to celebrate Refugee Week [link]. I had the pleasure of sitting with Sysay from Eritrea and Nasreen from Iraq who told me about their work for Refugee Action and their own personal stories which lead them to seek refuge in this country. They were truly inspiring and compassionate women. I hope if you are in the UK you will be able to attend some of the events this week, perhaps question your assumptions and prejudices about refugees and get more involved. Lots of Love Tanita
