What our heroes have common
What does a 12-year-old girl from the DRC, a Rohingya refugee dad, a grandmother from Syria and a UK healthcare worker, have in common?
Hardship? This may be one of the traits they have in common from the suffering they’ve had to endure, the fear of violence or the risk of contracting a deadly disease.
But above everything, what Priscilla, Obaidur, Ahlam and Ailbhe share, is their resilience, their courage and, along with amazing fundraisers here in the UK like Kamran and Sophia, their commitment to do whatever they can to help others. And for this, they are true heroes.
2020 has been a very challenging year for many people, but it’s also been a year where hidden heroes have risen from all around the globe to fight the pandemic. From doctors and nurses on the frontline putting their lives at risk to volunteers delivering much-needed food packages or hygiene kits to help keep families safe, to fundraisers, organising events to raise money that will help support more vulnerable children and their communities.
