A tiny bit of luxury
Something different happened last week. We got some basic mobile phones (treasure!) but oddly each one came in a pack with a white plastic watch. We weren’t sure what the refugees would think of that; you never see a refugee wearing a watch.
They loved the watches!! Made a big show of putting them on. The thing is, while these guys will go without food to get phone credit – a much needed commodity – a watch is just a luxury they don’t need.
BUT if you give them one, well then, they will enjoy wearing it and just for once have a tiny luxury that isn’t dictated just by need. A lovely thing to see.
