Hello John,

Nazir risked his life working with the British Forces in Afghanistan as an
interpreter from 2009 - 2012. In 2021, he and his family were forced to leave
behind their former lives in Kabul forfear of Taliban retaliation against him
and his loved ones. He can’t show his face in interviews because it would
endanger his relatives who were left behind.

Having to uproot your whole life and move half the world away to escape danger
is a terrifying thought. But we won’t leave Nazir and his family to rebuild
their lives alone.

We’ve welcomed over 200 refugees into our community, with new relationships
being nurtured through local activities and cricket games. Residents of Newport
Pagnell and across Milton Keynes have donated toys, shoes and clothes in droves
to support families like Nazir’s.They deserve the chance to begin to take some
control over their lives by choosing what they want from the items.

The community response to our campaign has been incredible - we’ve had so many
donations that our pick-up points have been overwhelmed!I am so proud of my
town and borough’s incredible efforts and compassion. It’s taken us four weeks
to sort and distribute due to the sheer scale of the project.

Helping these families embed their lives into our communities has been an
honour. But it’s also a personal thank you. People like Nazir and his
countrymen worked with and protected my brother and sister-in-law when they
toured Afghanistan with the British Army.

Our compassionate communities all across Milton-Keynes are helping nearly 1000
refugees, with many more families expected to join us. We want to make sure all
of them can see the UK as their new home.

We will continue to do all we can for those who have had to make such steep
sacrifices. Local councils have a key role to play in ensuring refugees get the
help they need and we are proud to do so. But we need the government to commit
to providing the funding to enable us to support them properly in the long term.

They have given up everything to help us. Now, Liberal Democrats are fighting
for the rights and protection they deserve.

I’m proud of the work we’ve done in Milton Keynes to welcome Nazir, his
family, and the other survivors of this crisis. Will you join the Lib Dem
campaign to do the same for refugees across Britain?

Thank you John, for your time and compassion.
