The Engaged Refugee Award and the London Champion Award were established in 2011 by the Life As A Refugee Committee to celebrate refugee and refugee advocates in the London area who have contributed to our community and represent what it means to be resilient. A person who is resilient must overcome the odds and surpass all expectations.
If you know of an outstanding individual in the London area who has demonstrated resilience, compassion, dedication and/or who has contributed in a positive way to making London a welcoming place for refugees, nominate that person today!
