Refugee Crisis: resources & prayers for children and young people

The plight of refugees continues to dominate the news – with myths twisting amongst the facts.

In June, Australia had Refugees Week, to allow churches focus on refugees. Although some of these links come from that Australian perspective, there is much in them to help inform leaders who may want to talk with children and young people about what’s happening in our country.
