Why do refugees undertake precarious journeys?
@SanobarFatma writes a comprehensive piece on refugee crisis on this #WorldRefugeeWeek…

#withrefugees Who Are Refugees?
A refugee is a person who is forced to flee their country or move to safety within their countries because of violence, war, persecution, and climate change. They cannot return home or are scared to do so.

Today is World Refugee Day.
It's a day to remember most vulnerable and oppressed. These are the people who were let down by their own government
Unfortunately, the policy of many states and international players still aims to invisiblize them.This is our attempt to prevent that. On this World Refugee Day, let's recognise the human rights of the refugees, let's accept that they are also humans who had to leave their everything to save their identity, their lives. Let's extend a hand of love, friendship and humanity.
