Impossible choices are made every day by over 125 million people affected by crises and natural disasters. What would you do? Flee your home to escape civil war, leaving behind everything you know and love? With airstrikes imminent, what do you choose to save and what do you leave behind? Our leaders have only once choice: Humanity. At the World Humanitarian Summit in May we need our leaders to sign up to a core set of actions that will charter a course for real change. Petition them to do so at ImpossibleChoices.org.
