In Park Maximillian I met Nazeer

In Park Maximillian in the centre of Brussels I met Nazeer. He was studying Petroleum Engineering in Sudan but was forced to leave due to fears for his safety. Nazeer has a goal that he assures me keeps him going in the harsh conditions in Brussels; his dream to gain his PhD. I wish that everyone could meet someone as ambitious positive and engaging as Nazeer.

As temperatures drop below 0 degrees in Brussels this week, it is clear that being able to provide warmth is essential to prevent the spirit of these wonderful people being broken.

This week I gave Nazeer a snug pack, and my heart was both lifted and broken to see him smile and be genuinely grateful for something so basic; a hat, scarf, warm gloves and fresh socks.

This week you can buy a snug pack for someone like Nazeer for just £5 and you will also get a beautiful gift voucher to give to a loved one. Can you purchase a snug pack, so we can provide more hats, gloves, scarves and socks?
