'I woke up one morning and on reading the news, felt heartbroken and immediately wrote 'We Don't Want War'. I was unsure if I would ever share it with anyone until the next morning when I read about Aylan, 3, and Galip Kurdi, 5, who were found dead on a Turkish Beach after an overcrowded boat filled with refugees fleeing the war in Syria capsized.
I decided I have to do something to help.
A very small donationcan make an enormous difference to those children who have survived the journey, and who are now in dire need. Many children have been separated en route, have experienced heartbreaking trauma or simply have nothing. With winter fast
approaching, life is about to get even harder. I hope this song will
inspire you to join this campaign and help make a difference to the
children facing life or death situations.’ Tallulah Rendall
