Around the world, there are millions of people fleeing their homes due to war, violence and persecution. The refugee crisis may seem distant, but there are ways we can help from our own homes. On this episode of Hope Helps, host Charly Burridge-Jones and guests shed new light on the experiences of refugees and volunteers in Europe.
Gulwali Passarlay, a refugee-turned-writer shares his experiences during and after his flight from Afghanistan. Nina Kerrou explains what it’s like to volunteer in refugee aid and how ordinary people can help. Both guests acknowledge the need for individuals to assist and help support refugees who cannot help themselves.
