To prepare for the future, the values upon which society is built need to change. We need to be humanKINDER to ourselves, each other and the planet.

The situation that I experienced as a volunteer in Calais Refugee Camp in 2015 compelled me to quit my job in UK government and set up a humanitarian business, humanKINDER. 

First task for me was to better understand our current situation, so from August 2017 for a year, I have been living on the road with my family to discover what is really happening in communities across Europe.

We have been travelling in our van with The Welcome Tent - an ex-army catering tent from 1956 repurposed for peace - meeting and cooking 'recipes of HOPE' with displaced human beings and those who are welcoming people with food. 

I am now weaving together the stories, recipes, hopes and dreams from the people we met on our 16,000 mile journey into a book.
