UNF Hicks Honors College Students Rock! Last night we attended the Colloquium Poster Presentations of the freshman class service projects working with the local refugee community. As we listened to each group, we heard their passion and especially how working with refugees has impacted their lives. It was an honor to be counted among the many local organizations represented.

We are very grateful for all that you do for the women to empower! It means a lot ❤️❤️ #womenempowerment #withrefugees #partnership #generosity #support #chance #kualalumpur #share

With Jonathan, an unaccompanied child who traveled from honduras by himself to Guatemala. He was fleeing violence and forced to go on his own.
This shelter, funded by @refugees a loving and safe environment for children separated from their parents, either by deportations at the us or Maxican boarder, sex trafficking, or children who have been abused and have no one.

Here they receive counseling, food, shelter. And most of all a family with each other.
Children should never be separated from their parents. The trauma is huge, as we all know. for some reunification is possible, for others it is not.
Places like this are the only stop gap from this kid being lost.
The energy here is amazing and the kids, despite going through incredible hardship, are so full of life and joy and incredible charm. It was the highlight of our trip.

We stand with them.⠀

With the refugees, with those forcibly displaced inside their own country, with the stateless persons.⠀

Tens of millions will need humanitarian assistance and protection globally in 2020 and beyond.⠀

To that end, donor governments pledged US$1.2 billion to UNHCR at an annual pledging conference in Geneva.⠀

This is a solid step towards providing shelter, food, education, healthcare and legal protection for the forcibly displaced and the stateless.⠀

Thank you very much to all donors! ⠀

You are opening a window of hope for many, many people!⠀

Witnessing tragedy.⠀

From photographer Vincent Tremeau:⠀

We just arrived to Cucuta, Colombia. ⠀

Thousands of people were stuck on Bolivar Bridge, the bridge that marks the border between Colombia and Venezuela, because the border was closed. As a photojournalist, I had never witnessed a displacement of so many people, fleeing their country, fleeing the life they always had to find a better one somewhere else. ⠀

The bridge was one way to cross the border, but there was another way: the river. Depending on the height of the water, Venezuelans would cross the river, risking their lives, to get to Colombia. These paths through the bush and the river are called "trochas" in Spanish. ⠀

As we were about to go to document the crossing and meet with refugees, a local TV crew just came back from there, telling us they got beaten up by Venezuelan armed groups who were embedded with the refugees crossing. They tried to kidnap them, but only managed to get their equipment. After a long discussion with the team we decided to go, because we had to show what was happening. The Colombia forces escorted us to ensure our security. ⠀

I never saw before such a massive displacement of people, live. It felt like witnessing a tragedy happening in front of my lens. But this feeling was also enhanced by the fact that I have a special link with Venezuela. I went there as a young backpacker 12 years ago, and at that time I never thought I would document such a tragedy with the same people living in what was before a tourist place. ⠀

Because I speak Spanish, when I spoke to people directly, I felt a direct connection. We speak the same language. We like the same things. One person I met even told me he went once to my hometown on holidays! It felt like this situation could happen to me too, it could happen to anyone actually. ⠀

These two young Somali refugees, along with their five siblings and their mother have been resettled to Sweden. ⠀

They're among the lucky few who are resettled to safe third countries.⠀

Resettlement is a lifeline for some of the most vulnerable refugees in the world.⠀

Refugee rights are human rights. ⠀

At UNHCR, we work everyday to ensure that refugee rights are respected and protected. We are mandated to protect refugees, the internally displaced and stateless people all over the world.⠀

Awatef is a 39-year-old Syrian refugee from the outskirts of Damascus. She currently lives in eastern Lebanon’s Beqaa Valley. She takes care of her husband, who has disabilities, and is the head of her household. She earns a small financial incentive through her volunteering job with UNHCR, by raising awareness of recycling.⠀

The daily reality for refugees like Awatef involves struggling to sustain themselves and providing for their children and families. ⠀

Everyone deserves to live in safety and dignity. ⠀

There's no place like home. ⠀

Guilaine is pointing at Bangui, the capital of the Central African Republic on her way back home after six years of exile. ⠀

"It is our home, we heard there was peace now and we prefer to return and work for our country," says Guilaine. After she fled, she was separated from her husband for a year as they ran in different directions. ⠀

Her husband used to be a sound engineer in the Central African Republic. He used his knowledge to work as a community relay putting together sensitization movies at the refugee settlement. He also opened a pre-school in September of this year, to make sure that kids at the settlement would have a sufficient level of knowledge when they started school. They are both glad to go back.⠀

"He became friends with the locals (in DRC) but the living cost is too expensive," says Guilaine. "There is joy and sad emotion because we have family here that decided to stay. It hurts the heart but we have to leave."⠀

Traditions. Cultural heritage. Hope. ⠀

These are some of the things Amal took with her after fleeing her home in Daraa, Syria eight years ago. ⠀

“I had just graduated from art college when the fighting started. I wanted to become an artist, to open my own store where I could sell my work but we had to leave and our lives completely changed,” she said. ⠀

Today, Amal works as a refugee artisan in Jordan and proudly shows the scarf she herself embroidered. Amal is supported by @made51_unhcr, a network that combines the skills of refugees like her with the capabilities of local social enterprises. ⠀

MADE51 is a UNHCR-led global brand of artisanal home decor and accessories crafted by refugees. It is a collaboration of local social enterprises worldwide working directly with refugee artisans to produce a unique line in the MADE51 collection. ⠀

Each item is a celebration of skilled craftsmanship and the power of human resilience. ⠀

Playing her guitar makes Maryam feel good. ⠀

“When I play my guitar, I get away from this world, its people and war. It makes me feel good," says the Iranian-born Afghan refugee. She attends weekly guitar lessons at a music institute in Isfahan.⠀

Born in Iran to refugee parents, Maryam has three siblings – all of whom are visually impaired, except her youngest sister. Her parents fled the 1979 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and came to Iran where they met and got married. Tragically, her mother was killed in a car accident when she was very young.⠀

Over the last few years, music and knitting have become a big part of Maryam’s life. Playing the guitar and harmonica has become a passion, as has knitting kilim-style Turkish rugs and gabbeh-style Persian rugs with her sister Salimeh. They sometimes sell the rugs to earn money for the family. ⠀

Their father supports their ambition to open a knitting workshop and to become professional musician! However, due to the lack of music books in braille, they are faced with the challenge of memorising all the notes and chords.⠀
