Our Stories Matter – Supporting Refugees
Refugees don’t need handouts, but they need empowerment. People who flee from violence want a place of safety, find food and work, but I believe healing should be the primary and basic thing provided.
There is only one person in this world who can fix you, speak your truth and your emotions. Finding your voice and sharing your truth will not only help you make sense of your life. During the process of healing, we may find the strength to share our pain with those who understand or can resonate with our message.
