November 2017 Crosslight out now

november crosslight

Our November cover image features Achala, a young Sri Lankan refugee who lives in a camp in Tamil Nadu, India, and her grandmother (and carer) Praveena. Diagnosed with leukaemia in 2015, for the next two years, Achala was in and out of hospital in Chennai for monthly chemotherapy treatments. The Organisation for Eelam Refugee’s Rehabilitation (OfERR) assisted Praveena with hospitalisation and travel expenses and OfERR health workers make regular home visits to her in the camp. OfERR, a partner of Act for Peace, has supported Sri Lankan refugees who fled to Tamil Nadu since 1984.
