#YouAreNotAlone Charity Campaign
“I’ve just returned from a visit to southern Turkey and a camp on the Turkish/Syrian border in Gaziantep. People here have lost their homes and are waiting for peace to return, but the children still remain bright and hopeful. The visit was much appreciated and they sang for me. A beautiful human experience.
Our campaign is called #YouAreNotAlone, inspired by the saying of Pope Francis during his recent visit to a refugee camp in Greece. Funds raised will be channeled through Save The Children for their Child Refugee Crisis Appeal & Penny Appeal UK for their #YouAreNotAlone campaign via our own charity Small Kindness.
I have written a song dedicated to a child of the road which will be released together with a video for charity in June: ‘He Was Alone’. My hope is to open people’s hearts to the sadness experienced by thousands of young souls whose voices are not heard in the clamour created by the politicians and the media in the midst of the refugee crisis, generated by the wars and conflicts blazing through their homelands.”
