20 New Displacements Every Minute

By | 16th October, 2017|News|

By the end of 2016, 65.6 million individuals were forcibly displaced worldwide as a result of persecution, conflict, violence, or human rights violations. That was an increase of 300,000 people over the previous year, and the world’s forcibly displaced population remained at a record high. The number of new displacements was equivalent to 20 people being forced to flee their homes every minute of 2016, or 28,300 every day. This is the harsh reality for many of our friends that come to our centre every day for help, support, advice and a listening ear. Their stories are incomprehensible. We can only carry on helping them with the support of our loving community and for that we thank you. If you are wondering how you can help please feel free to come and visit us to see our work for yourself. We always welcome new visitors and friendly faces to the Centre. You can also make a massive difference to small charities like us by donating to our #helpinghalifax campaign. • via our give.net page – https://www.give.net/20171078 • by sending a cheque payable to St. Augustine’s Centre. • or by popping some loose change into one of our collection tins at the Centre.   Source: http://www.unhcr.org/globaltrends2016/

400 fresh carnations, music to fill your heart and a story to take you to the edge, Near Gone is coming to Yorkshire for the first time ever! So, be there! Get your tix here - https://www.squarechapel.co.uk/whats-on/near-gone/ Near Gone won a Total Theatre Award for Innovation, Experimentation and Playing with Form in 2014 and The Pulse Suitcase Prize in 2013 amongst others and it has toured extensively in the UK, USA, Ukraine, Poland, Israel and Ireland! Two performers – a man and a woman – on a bare stage with 400 flowers. Based on true events, these two performers have a difficult story to tell. They come on stage and launch themselves into an hour long attempt to put into words the utterly unspeakable. ...Delivered in English and Bulgarian, with pounding gypsy-inspired music, this beautiful performance fills an empty space with two performers, hundreds of fresh flowers and a storm of emotion. A performance piece that packs a punch – transforming your very sense of what it is to be a mother, a father, a child. And you’ll leave more fully alive than ever. The Scotsman , David Pollock ★★★★: “beyond the limits of mere language.” With another ★★★★, Edinburgh Evening News ‘ Ed Frankl called it “a brilliantly captured [...]
