Side By Side Refugees: Christmas Came Early

I have been meaning to write something for a really long time, or maybe it just feels like a really long time… I don’t know. What I do know is that I am physically and mentally exhausted whilst being simultaneously elated to the point of bouncing! One of my new roles has been Project Manager…

I'm A Christian; My Country Is Not
