Why she felt the need to do it

  • Don’t see enough about in the news about the plight of refugees. Over 5.6m fled Syria 6.6m internally displaced, 650k living in Jordan.
  • Good to realise how privileged we are to live in a democracy and the friends and family are well, can cook and have safe water and freedom and choice.
  • Important to recognition that people are displaced due to climate change
  • Spending time with young adults and know that some of those people would have been in food poverty and wanted to see what it’s like for them.
  • Recognition that people are displaced due to climate change
