World Refugee Day

Imagine that your house was taken away. Imagine that the familiar world you knew about you has crumbled around your ears and all you can do is to leave with a few belongings to seek another world, another place, another life. But when you go to that new place, life isn’t easy: you are looked upon as an outsider. They keep you out of most things, they don’t know they can trust you. Your people don’t have jobs, they struggle for food, some of them are undocumented, they suffer abuse and they wonder what their future will portend for them.

Welcome to the life of a Refugee.
