Welcome to the Refugee Support Express
Today marks International Women’s Day – a day that commemorates the movement of women’s rights and celebrates the strength of women across the nations.
At Refugee Support Europe, we not only stand in solidarity with refugees, but stand for solidarity between all races, religions, sexualities and genders.
To celebrate International Women’s day, we would like to take this opportunity to recognise and reflect (in a special photo edition of the Refugee Support Express) on the incredible strength of thr female volunteers and the refugees that we have worked with over the past few years.
As the theme song sings, ‘change their minds and change the world’ – and we look forward to continuing to change minds and lives with the aid of the fantastic female volunteers and refugees that we work with.

Women are brave
We can be anything we want to be.
We’ve worked with many wonder women over the past two years
And we have worked with survivors
who have overcome so much
and despite all they have witnessed
and have time to teach us a thing or two!
We have worked with volunteers and donors
who have helped make the impossible
Look at Sue cooking up a storm at LM Village
the boys can do it too, but it takes two!
And who says girls can’t lift?
To all of our female volunteers, refugees, colleagues, donors and friends
Happy International Women’s Day!
You are already changing minds and changing worlds
and are all wonder women to us!
Here’s to another year of aiding with dignity and girl power!
Thanks as always for your unyielding hard work.
