Silent Heroes

Last year TV screens, Twitter feeds, and newspapers were filled with images of thousands of migrants entering Europe. They disembarked boats, boarded overcrowded trains, and walked up motorways in search of safety.

We saw acts of kindness from strangers on the Greek island of Lesbos, and at train stations all over Central Europe. Who are these people handing out clothes and food to the refugees? What prompted their selfless good deeds?

The Silent Heroes Facebook page, which is run by United Nations Youth Delegates from across the world, is a page similar to the famous Humans of New York project and features these people and tells their story.
