Saying “hello” can be the beginning of an incredible adventure of meeting new people and seeing lives changed. 

That’s why Friends International are inviting you and your church to be part of the ‘Just Say Hello’ Day – a day for stepping forward to welcome international students to the UK and Ireland, by supporting the work of Friends International. 

Although universities up and down the country are reeling from the impact of Covid-19, thousands of students are now arriving for the start of the new academic year and the support Friends International provides is needed more than ever. 

It is simple just to say “hello”, but it can make a huge difference to someone.
