National Relate President, Anjula Mutanda says
“We want to offer whatever support we can to those who are suffering as a result of the war in Ukraine. As a former child refugee, I understand on a very visceral level the anxiety, fear and trauma that accompanies being torn from safety and thrown into an uncertain world. I also know that it is incredibly powerful to know that there’s someone to talk to, willing to listen and support in terrible times. Nothing can match human kindness. Our counsellors are here to help.”
