Refugee Council London Night Walk 2012
Join us for a 10km night walk on 1st September 2012 in central London to celebrate the 18th birthday of our work with separated child refugees. The route will go through some of London's most spectacular sites along the River Thames, as well as locations that reflect the contribution of refugees to British society. For example, around half of the workers that built the Southbank Centre in 1951 were refugees.
Our night walk will show our support for child refugees who flee war-torn countries to reach a safe haven - especially the Afghan boys who braved a treacherous journey to safety, spanning thousands of miles. The story of the plight of the Afghan boys was recently featured in a moving article in the Guardian.
Every year the Refugee Council gives help and support to around 1,000 child refugees who arrive in the UK alone, without their family. Nearly half of these children have witnessed the death or abduction of one or both of their parents.
Please join us and Walk for Child Refugees - either as an individual, as a team, or as a family - in a fun, vibrant and family-friendly atmosphere as we raise awareness and vital funds to help child refugees find safety and a new home.
