Winnipeg Free Press - PRINT EDITION

Kenya stories inspiring

  • Print

Carol Sanders' excellent series of articles on the state of camps in Kenya and the challenges facing refugees there have restored my faith in the noble side of journalism.

Her writing, while being true to reporting objectively, also appeals to our intellect while adding the much-needed human touch in bringing these stories to a western audience. Her emphasis on highlighting the power of human spirit -- its resilience and dignity in the most horrible of conditions -- is inspiring.

I commend the Winnipeg Free Press for facilitating coverage of issues that don't usually get the attention they deserve from the community at large. Most of us will never experience being torn from our family and waiting in limbo to find a sanctuary we can call home, but for millions of people around the world, this is their reality.

We may not be able to help everyone, but at least we can help organizations that work with refugees and can pressure elected officials to unite families whose members reside in Canada.
