WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT OUR WORK

“Refugees have names, they are not just statistics. They have hopes and dreams like us, they have regrets like us. They have mothers and fathers, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters. They smile, laugh and cry. They find it hard to get out of bed on a Monday morning. They are human beings.”
Daniel Crowley
JRS Youth Ambassador
“I came back with a sense of hope and goodness of the people who dedicated their lives to give these young people a chance”
Emmylou Harris
