Leave No one behind

We're turning our mission towards the realised and potential effects of the current COVID-19 situation on refugees, asylum seekers, and newcomers in the UK and across the world.  

'Leave No One Behind' is an online campaign aiming to:
 

  • Highlight the urgent need to help vulnerable refugee/asylum seeker communities, whilst staying true to our mission.
     

  • Raise £1000 for Help Refugees/Choose Love's 'Emergency Coronavirus Appeal'

WHY THIS CAUSE?

We have chosen Choose Love/Help Refugees as a beneficiary specifically for their Coronavirus Emergency Appeal campaign, which has pledged every penny raised to: 
 

  • Increase their support to medical organisations providing doctors and  nurses to those who have none

  • Provide emergency isolation accommodation for the sick

  • Distribute tens of thousands of bars of soap and bottles of hand sanitiser

The campaign

We will be featuring a limited online series of:

  • Specialty blogs focused on issues such as the potential effects of the situation on newcomers' mental health, 

  • Spotlights on the good work of various organisations and people from refugee backgrounds both in the UK and across the world

  • Highlighting the disproportionate ways lockdown affects refugee/asylum seeker communities
