Michael meets Musa

Yesterday evening I was invited by Refugee Action to a talk given by Michael Palin at the Royal Geographic Society [link] with Musa Ibrahim who recounted his journey from Somalia to Britain and the experience of seeking asylum in this country. After all the trials and hardships that someone in this position faces , what I found most moving was when Musa was asked by a member of the audience how we could help to make refugees more welcome, he answered simply, 'A smile '. If you would like to find out more about Refugee Action and the work that they do please follow the [link]. Love tt.
