Papers: An Incredible Day

The dust is still settling, and the team still recovering from the most incredible day yesterday.

We had everything…

Actual shelters from the Calais Jungle, an inflatable boat from the shores of Lesvos, a UNHCR tent from Za’atari camp in Jordan and even the exact wifi access point that we have been installing into camps, up and running, so you could connect to Jangala wifi!

Live music, poetry, panel discussions, films, Eritrean food prepared by young refugees living in Kent and so much amazing artwork…

But best of all was the incredible people that yesterday brought together…

I was humbled and overwhelmed by the sheer loyalty and compassion and power and size of the amazing community we are sharing this journey with.

From long-term volunteers, to residents of the camp I hadn’t seen for ages, to so many of you guys I had never met before…I have so much love for all of you, I could cry just thinking about it.

Thank you to everyone who came. Now I believe more than ever, that together we really can do anything! (Including saving Alpha’s shelter from being bulldozed and rebuilding it in the Barbican!!!!)
