WIL in Lockdown

These mini interviews were a snapshot in time: APRIL - JUNE 2020. They tried to capture a small part of the Covid experience from WIL supporters all over the world. We know that the Covid Crisis is not over but many countries have emerged from lockdown and are entering a new period so we are closing submissions. It was uplifting and inspiring to hear your voices from all over the world and good to know that we were and still are, all in it together. Thank you for sharing.

You can still listen to the uplifting and eclectic playlist generated by the participants.

5 words to describe your lockdown experience
Family. Love. Friendship. Art. Loneliness.
What have you learnt from this experience?
We don’t have to be afraid of express our good feelings... If you love someone, tell it! If you miss someone, tell it! If you need someone, tell it! If some one it’s important for you, TELL IT! The present is a gift...

“We’re all under the same sky and walk the same earth; we’re alive together during the same moment.”

Maxine Hong Kingston, ‘The Woman Warrior’
