You don’t know what a small gesture means to a refugee. Even just a smile can mean so much.


It’s the little things that matter – a kind word or a smile can make such a difference to all of us. But it can mean even more to someone who has been forced to flee their home because of war and violence. It lets them know that they’re not alone. That there are people here in Britain who care. Who share their hope that they can build a new life here. If you’re one of those people, please leave a message. Your words could make someone’s day.
