Michael’s work is truly inspiring.
Care 4 Calais states that the world’s refugee crisis is the greatest humanitarian issue of our generation and how we respond will define us for years to come.
Among the support and work being done to support refugees however, are the voices of descent; those who seek to demonise refugees and their desire for a safe new life. This attitude has always bothered me intensely. I want to set the record straight.
We need hard conversations with those who know first-hand about the truth and realities of refugees. So this week I’m talking with Michael Failla. He’s been a refugee activist since 1982 and works closely with LGBTQ+ refugees to get them to safety and resettled in a new country.
