Around 25 million people worldwide are refugees, fleeing their home countries as a result of persecution, war or violence. Over half of them are under the age of 18. These people are not just numbers – they are individuals like us. They had homes, careers, and social lives; they have children like ours who played sport and played with friends; they had promising futures, hopes and dreams.
Since October 2016 Marlow Refugee Action have been connecting people with ways to respond, focusing on projects that have connections in one way or another with our local community. At the heart of what we do is an awareness of how fortunate we are to live in this beautiful area in peace, safety and comfort.
