As I write this, its Sunday. I’m working, but happily so. A day of rest is conducive to sitting with my computer, coffee and no distractions. I know I’m not the only one. It‘s safe to say the i-ACT team rarely stops. I receive emails at all hours and days of the week. But again, happily so.
I sit in my room writing and working, I’m surrounded by the books I’ve kept over the years. The pages I’ve read, marked, folded and highlighted. Most having to do with development work, Africa, human rights, conflict resolution, peace, poverty, health, the UN charter, history
Last week, my colleague Katie-Jay wrote that we “are here to stand with the refugees… and we are not leaving”. So true. And our “stand” requires that we work, around the clock for our friends who endure life in refugee camps in Eastern Chad. Hence, our “stand” requires my Sunday.
Please support us as we continue to foster a culture of peace in a radical way. Join us in our stand, right now.
