In May 2018, 20 supporters walked 120km along some of the refugee route to raise awareness and raise funds. We will be continuing the walk in 2019.
In 2015, Europe started to close its borders to refugees whose only choice was to leave their homes in search of safety and security in Europe.
We've seen a slow improvement in living conditions. But conditions in many places are still dreadful, people are waiting far too long for their applications to be processed, the southern border countries are shouldering the burden and still the refugees come.
As a continent we have failed the refugees both morally and politically.
Read about our first walk below. We are organising another one for May 2019. If you would like to take part, get in touch.
