Welcome The Stranger

Around the world millions of people are being forced out of their homes because of war, with nowhere to go. We’ve got a history of welcoming the stranger and we’re not about to stop now. Take part in our petition to demand a better welcome to refugees. 


This is a petition like no others. Here's how to add your name: 

1. Get yourself a piece of red string / wool / ribbon / shoe lace. 

2. Read these stories of refugee experiences.

3. As you read each story, tie a knot in your wool as a prayer for them.

4. Pop your thread in an envelope and post it to us at: The Collective, Christian Aid, 35 Lower Marsh, London, SE1 7RL.

5. Keep an eye out as we turn thousands of threads into a giant knitted petition to our political leaders!

It’s time for the world to stop ignoring those who are being left behind.

Get involved.
