Dr. Krish Kandiah answers your questions!

For each Project, we give you the chance to ask questions to experts on the topic.

Meet Dr. Krish Kandiah, social entrepreneur and founder of Sanctuary Foundation - an organisation which helps governments, individuals, community groups, churches, schools and businesses to step up to help Ukrainian refugees. We'll let Krish introduce himself...


What prompted you to do such great work?
fabulous_flight, Marka Prep. Girls School 2, Jordan


How does your organisation help with the mental well-being of refugees?
skillful_cranberry, School of Excellence Sector-23 Rohini, India

Mental health is a huge challenge...it's very likely for many of the children and their mothers that they may be bereaved whilst they are here in the UK... I try to gather experts together and say if we can't get access to professionals, is there anything that we need to know as amateurs, as neighbours, as friends, as colleagues....it's a little bit like first aid training
