"It is difficult to imagine the lives they have lived and the adversity they have endured.” 
Recently one of our members, Wasim Ahmed, volunteered for Care4Calais, a charity created to deliver essential aid to refugees in the UK, France and Belgium. As part of the 5-day volunteering Wasim helped provide warm clothing, bedding, food and medical assistance to people in desperate need, often some of the most vulnerable, who have had to flee persecution or war.

The Green Party seek to provide asylum to those forced from their homes, and will work towards a world in which no-one has to flee their home. In the build up to this year’s general election, please be mindful of the increasing dangerous and violent language that’s directed to refugees by other political parties. Please remember to always encourage those around you to act from a place of compassion, rather than from an attitude of contempt.
