People have been asking us: 'but why don't you give attention to the war? Why doesn't I CARE speak out on that?'
First of all, we are not in favour of war, any war. We do recognize and realise the impact of the war on people and we fear that this war will lead to more division, bloodshed and hate between the multi-ethnic and multi-religious communities
in all parts of the world. Having said that, it would not be good for I CARE to focus on the war while people
all over the world face everyday racism and need all the attention and exposure they can get for this. So that is
why we are not giving too much attention to it, especially not during the International action week against
racism which is being ignored by the mainstream media since they are all focussing on the war.
