On behalf of the NGO Committee on Migration, I want to thank you for a really interesting presentation and discussion yesterday at our final monthly meeting for 2020, this one virtual. The project you have undertaken, to train migrants and refugees to become film-makers and record the stories of their lives and their concerns, is a really fascinating community undertaking, designed to both foster coherence among the migrants and refugees themselves and understanding in the wider community.
