Popping up on Newburgh Street in the centre of Soho this Refugee Week, 'Choose Love x A Mile in My Shoes' offers a human experience where visitors can momentarily step into the shoes of a refugee living in London. Visitors will have the chance to borrow a pair of shoes belonging to a refugee and take a walk while listening to a first-hand story of their life.
Storytellers include Lord Alf Dubs, who arrived in London as a child from Czechoslovakia and has become a politician and life-long advocate for fellow refugees. Other stories include Ramla Ali, a champion Somali boxer, and Aloysius Ssali, a gay refugee from Uganda who runs a community group for LGBTQIA+ refugees, asylum seekers and migrants.
