“IT’S A HUGE HONOUR TO WORK FOR SUCH AN IMPORTANT AND WORTHY CAUSE. WAR AND CONFLICT HAVE DEVASTATED SO MANY LIVES OVERSEAS, CAUSING UNBELIEVABLE SUFFERING AND POVERTY TO INNOCENT FAMILIES. SEEING THE SUFFERING OF THOUSANDS OF REFUGEES IS UPSETTING, ESPECIALLY KNOWING THAT THE ONES WHO SUFFER MOST, ARE CHILDREN. BUT IRT ARE REALLY MAKING A CHANGE TO PEOPLE’S LIVES. EVERY DONATION, BAKE SALE, SPONSORED RUN, AND FACEBOOK POST SHARE,  IS SO IMPORTANT TO REFUGEES, AND REALLY DOES SAVE LIVES. I CHOSE THIS CAREER BECAUSE I WANTED TO MAKE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD, BUT IT’S OUR SUPPORTERS WHO REALLY MAKE THE DIFFERENCE. WITHOUT THEM, WE SIMPLY WOULDNT EXIST”.
