At 5pm on Sunday 20th November, as the dark nights begin to draw in communities will gather along the Firth of Forth in Scotland and in other sites around the world to light lights of hope for those besieged in Aleppo. Join in wherever you are, or light candles in your own homes.
All people still living in war zones around the world have less and less food to live on each day, fewer and fewer medical supplies to respond to the constant arms attacks, and aid cannot easily get through. We want them to know that wherever they are they not forgotten, and the world is watching. When we are helpless to do much, we can answer the darkness by sending messages of light around the world.
