We said “never again”…

2. September 2015, Alan Kurdi(3), was found drowned outside Bodrum, Turkey.

The picture of his lifeless body moved a whole world, and inspired thousands of people to get involved in the refugee crisis in the Aegean Sea.

Aylan’s father, Abdulla Kurdi, who lost his wife and two children said “let these be the last to die, and let their death not be in vain.

5 years later, people are still dying in the attempt to reach safety in Europe. Hundreds of children have died since the day Aylan drowned, his death seems to have been in vain..

We said “never again”, and look where we are now, I’m so ashamed of what we have become..

In memory of Alan Kurdi(Aylan Shenu)
