Prince Charles Calls War “an Immeasurable Tragedy”
Prince Charles recently lashed out at Russia for their “unconscionable” attack on Ukraine, which is by right, a sovereign nation.
He also showed his strong support for the Ukrainians fleeing their home as a result of the crisis.
On March 10, Charles visited St Luke’s Church in London and heard about Holy Trinity Brompton’s work supporting refugees and asylum seekers.
The refugee volunteer program was originally launched in September 2021 with the help of dozens of people who volunteered to provide essential support.
The 73-year-old met and chatted with people who are supported by the Refugee Response programme. This includes providing free English lessons, employability support, medical and dental help, and children’s programmes.
Charles also talked to and heard from women and children from Afghanistan who were taking part in the arts and crafts activities provided by HTB’s church.
During the visit, Prince Charles said: “It is an immeasurable tragedy that so much death and destruction exists around the world at this present time, leading to such utter misery for so many people who have to leave their countries like you have.”
He continued by congratulating the “selfless” organizations from around the world who donate time and money to alleviating the pains and discomfort felt by refugees.
“We are so fortunate to have people like the wonderful churches here, who are all over the world – all helping, all providing selfless service under the most challenging, dangerous conditions.”
