I was a refugee

Many years ago that was me
An innocent child lost
A refugee

In the midst of war
It was time to depart
A place we knew as home
Once in our heart

We cried for peace
We ached for safety
We longed for belonging

We left alarmed
Arrived unharmed
With opened arms we were greeted
Kind hearted
people were what we needed

~Thank you Germany … You will always have a special place in my heart~

Here’s How You Can Help Migrants in Europe

There are a number of organizations that you can donate to. Médecins Sans Frontières and UNICEF are both helping the refugees, along with other well-established organizations like Save the Children and the Red Cross. There are other groups working specifically for this crisis. Migrant Offshore Aid Station sends rescue boats to migrants at risk of drowning, and the Aylan Kurdi Fund was established after a photo of a drowned 3-year-old boy went viral.
