I was invited to appear on this show “Referendum” on TVR1 , together with a political analyst, an Orthodox priest, an anthropologist, a psychologist and a Moldovian woman with relatives in the Ukraine. The piece was designed to focus not just on the politics of what is happening, but on the human impact. My role was to represent the federation of child protection organisations and talk about my AMURTEL experiences with refugee children. I also shared about conversations I had had that day with my brothers and sisters both in the Ukraine and in Russia. There is such a heavy, painful impact this is having on everyone. As always happens in these scenarios many innocent lives are paying for the decisions of a few, who try to drag the rest of us in by fueling powerful divisive sentiments.
