Just because it isn't happening here, doesn't mean it isn't happening.

As a Sri Lankan with family who fled civil war I’m sad to say... this video is pretty accurate. To all the people posting negative things about refugees, please imagine if this was your daughter. Just because it isn’t happening here, doesn’t mean it isn’t happening.

The world is facing its biggest refugee crisis since World War II. Thousands are fleeing torture, persecution and death. Many of us have met them with open arms, yet many still greet them with hate. Why? Because distorting the facts and demonising refugees dehumanises them. And dehumanising them makes it easier to turn a blind eye to their problems.

We encourage everyone to take a walk in this little girl’s shoes! Because empathy is the only way we're going to solve this.
