Description

"While the world faces incomprehensible numbers and statistics created by the refugee crisis the tragedy and story of a single soul gets missed.

It was difficult to stand by just watching this tragedy without trying to do something. I simply decided to help humanize the narrative and lend my voice to the call for keeping hearts and doors open to every refugee, especially youngsters, who have lost what future they might have once hoped for."

Yusuf Islam, the singer-songwriter formerly known as Cat Stevens, recently visited the camps for Syrian refugees in southern Turkey. And then he wrote “He Was Alone,” a song about the plight of one kid trying to find a new life for himself and dying on the road. Islam is using the song to introduce a new charity campaign dedicated to the refugee children in Europe; there are currently 10,000 missing. And the song, which makes the kid’s plight tangible, is tough to watch but also important.
