Fashion designer Bella Freud's latest ‘Peace and Love’ t-shirt for War Child has garnered support from a host of celebrities and influencers who have been sharing their support for the new grey colour way which has been released for this year’s World Refugee Day, which took place on Tuesday, June 20.
Celebrities including Charithra Chandran, Joshua Whitehouse, Jack Savoretti, Birdy, Siobhan Donaghy, Sai Bennett, Jack Guinness and DJ Henri Bergmann have taken to their social media channels to share images of themselves wearing the t-shirt whilst calling upon their followers to unite in solidarity with refugees.
The world is currently facing an unprecedented refugee crisis as 108.4 million people find themselves displaced with an estimated 43.3 million of them innocent children – almost 40% of the total.
As the world marked World Refugee Day, Charithra Chandran, Joshua Whitehouse, Jack Savoretti, Birdy, Siobhan Donaghy, Sai Bennett, Jack Guinness and DJ Henri Bergmann are asking people to purchase their own ‘Peace and Love’ t-shirt to support War Child’s work with refugees including in Ukraine, Syria and Yemen.
War Child’s Strategic Projects Manager, Emily Simms, said:
“All refugees deserve compassion, dignity, and a chance at a brighter future. By purchasing a ‘Peace and Love’ t-shirt, War Child can then transform adversity into opportunity, ignite hope amidst despair, and empower those forced to flee their homes with the tools and support they need to rebuild their lives.”
Bella Freud, said:
"I'm honoured to be supporting War Child this World Refugee Day. Their dedication to providing support and protection to children affected by war and displacement is impressive. Peace and Love is the antithesis of war. War is barbaric and permits the collapse of humane behaviour and the absenting of accountability for cruelty. There is not enough political will invested in avoiding war.
Let us stand together in solidarity with refugees around the world, acknowledging their strength and resilience in the face of adversity. By purchasing a Peace and Love t-shirt for War Child, we can send a powerful message of empathy and support, letting refugees know that they are not alone in their journey towards hope."
