Merry Christmas!

Today I celebrate Swedish Christmas with my family here in London and tomorrow we have a traditional English Christmas so there’s a lot of buzz in the house. merry-christmas-1083982_1280

Amidst all the excitement and piles of presents awaiting under the Christmas tree, I believe it’s important to make time to pause and reflect on the state of the world; thinking in particular of the thousands of Syrian refugees in desperate need of a safe and warm place for themselves and their families.

When our governments fail to show solidarity with refugees fleeing war and destruction, it is all the more important that we – you and me – do what we can to support the men, women and children who face the winter with neither a home nor country to call their own.

Please give generously, therefore, to the many charities that are supporting Syrian refugees this holiday season. Here are just some suggestions:

The Guardian and Observer Charity Appeal 2015

Unicef UK

Unicef Sweden 

Thank you all for continuing to read my blog and I look forward to posting more stories in the new year!
