Illustration is an effective way to convey a number of important messages about the ‘refugee
crisis’. It is worrying that refugees have been dehumanised, demonised and are regarded as a growing problem.

These drawings were created at the Oasis Refugee Centre in Cardiff  and
Alyth Synagogue in London. The Oasis Refugee Centre, founded in 2008, supports and provides services to help refugees and migrants today. This includes a daily lunch for hundreds of people that have come from all over the world. Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan, Mali, Congo, Eritrea and Syria to name but a few.
