What kindness makes possible

by | Mar 6, 2020 | Shared Experiences | 0 comments

There was much to learn about migration and what makes it emotionally possible to settle in the UK. Everyone who was at the event will remember the family story so generously shared by the Truong brothers.

We will always remember how they talked about the importance of storytelling, kindness and gratitude. We hope that by sharing stories like this, we might inspire people who have always lived in the UK to reach out to those starting to make their new life here. There are lots of way to do this: through the Sanctuary Movement (https://cityofsanctuary.org/), through TimePeace, https://www.timepeaceapp.org , just going to the Welcome Kitchen and Presents eveningswelcomepresents.com or through institutions in your area such as the Church, Synagogue, Mosque, Temple etc.. Our main purpose is though that people migrating to the UK will
learn from people who have made a similar journey and some of the insights that will help you create your own life in the UK. We certainly saw that after a very dramatic and difficult journey 40 years ago that ended in the Uk, The Truong brothers are flourishing. We were delighted to read how it was written up on the Ockenden Prizes website:
