Gaby Roslin describes her feelings about Christmas, and why she supports our Christmas appeal.

Presenter Gaby Roslin talks to ActionAid about what keeps her feeling happy and safe. Gaby is supporting ActionAid’s Christmas appeal to help protect homeless children around the world whose lives have been devastated by war, natural disasters and the terrible effects of climate change.

When I think back about this past year, some of the most striking images that come to my mind are the faces of children, caught up in terrible events that they cannot understand, but that they must endure. The faces of children from Nepal, covered in dust and blood as they crawled from under the rubble that used to be their homes and schools. The faces of refugee children, traumatised by war, searching desperately for safety in a strange land. During the festive season, while we enjoy food and laughter with our loved ones, it's impossible to ignore the plight of millions of children who have nothing.
