“It’s not always easy to understand the life of an asylum seeker or a refugee because our world is often so different to theirs’. But the more we try to listen to their stories and step into their shoes, the more our hearts and eyes can be opened.
“The more we break down the ‘us and them’ mentality the more we will be able to see just a human being in need. It’s only then can we can understand that it’s our responsibility as fellow human beings to show kindness and hospitality.”
“We all have our own struggles, but it’s very unlikely that we’ll ever experience anything like what is experienced by those seeking asylum.”
