New campaign gets underway to help public better understand reality of forced displacement

For Refugee Week, the UK’s arm for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees based in London is launching ‘Cuppa Hope’.

It’s a campaign to start new conversations about what it means to be forced to flee your home by listening to individuals’ stories – ideally over a brew.

With many having fled war in the past few years seeking asylum in the UK the events to help encourage the public come and understand more.

The next event is hosted at CaffA, south of the River Thames in Deptford tomorrow.

James has been hearing from Emma Cherniavsky, Chief Executive of UK for UNHCR.
