Nothing beats the smell of fresh bread
Mmmm! Nothing beats the smell of fresh bread!
That was the scent that greeted us at the camp known as Old Lidl when we visited the other day.
The community told us they had run out of bread. They had expecting bread from another organisation but, when it didn’t come, they decided to make their own from flour we gave them.
They showed us how they were making it. The dough was just flour, salt and water. They got us chairs too so we could sit around the fire and watch, and the smell was incredible.
They were delighted at how impressed we were. The whole thing was such a lovely demonstration of basic hospitality.
The refugees we come across every day never fail to astound us with their constant innovation and their amazing resilience, despite everything they’ve been through.
And yet our country wants to turn such amazing people away? Unbelievable.
