The Refugee

I’ll start with an ethics statement. I asked this lady if I could take her photo to record her plight. She agreed. It was only after I took the picture I gave her a donation which I hope has helped her out in some way. I don’t know anything about her plight. I know very little about refugees anywhere in the world. While I admit to possessing limited knowledge about the hardships faced by refugees across the globe, I do not merely seek to make a political statement nor can I readily be defined as an activist. Rather, I am deeply grateful for the blessings in my own life and strive to extend assistance wherever possible. In this captured image, I witnessed not just an individual in dire need, but a symbolic representation of countless others who deserve our unwavering attention and empathy. The sight of this resolute lady serves as a poignant reminder of the stark disparities that exist in our world, urging us to seize opportunities to lend a helping hand.

Therefore, as you gaze upon this photograph, may you be stirred to recognise the abundance and privilege present in your own life. Let it propel you to seek out a cause that resonates with your heart, one where you can dedicate your time, resources, and energy to making a meaningful difference. Embrace the profound potential within you to uplift the lives of those who desperately need our collective support. Together, let us embark on a journey of compassion, making our world a brighter place for all.
