Answer hate with humanity!

type: Donation
by: Deniz Zehra Tavli

The temperatures in the Central-European hemispheres have dropped to the freezing point- winter has come! While each lucky one with a warm home to return to after a long exhausting day of work, thousands of men, women and children are piling up at Europe's doorstep - hungry and unimaginably exhausted, a lot more than any of us can be, because they are fleeing bombs and violent extremists taking over their home towns! But with the spark of great hope that someone soon will just open one door, and the nightmare will be over.

Still a gesture of solidarity and welcoming from political decision makers fails to appear: European governments are reacting to terror by closing borders and rejecting refugees' pleas for assistance. A chilling winter of death is settling in and we, global citizens, remain the best chance for those trapped by Europe's shameful walls.

Now our community can work with the United Nations to help them fund a plan to protect and transport thousands of people stranded along the border to safe centres. Not only can we unleash a fleet of buses and caravans to save lives, but our contribution can also fuel the desperately needed campaigning to fight hate and push nations everywhere to house hundreds of vulnerable refugee families throughout the winter.

There’s no time to lose! Join in to bring hope behind the fences! Donate an amount of your choice to the Avaaz team and answer hate with humanity!
