“She is A Refugee Star performance sparks flames that speak to the fight for individualized freedom, the fight to be able to be, and become the truest versions of ourselves, pressing against societal norms, institutionalized constructed behaviors, assigned roles based on gender.

The Council of Europe’s Committee for the Prevention of Torture (CPT) said thousands of migrants and refugees in Greece are living in “inhuman and degrading” conditions in detention centers and camps. According to Germany’s Deutsche Welle, the report highlighted a “lack of doctors, medicines, food and drinking water in several camps along Turkey’s land border, in Athens, and on the Aegean islands,” resulting in numerous health problems, including scabies from dirty blankets. Similar complaints from more than 20 human rights groups and activists about what they said were brutal conditions in Greek refugee and migrant detention centers and camps were ignored by the ruling Radical Left SYRIZA. The full story can be found in the link in the bio above. ———————————————————————— (Photo by ND's Press Office/Dimitris Papamitsos via Eurokinissi) #refugees #greece #europeanunion @councilofeurope #turkey #migration #syriza #neadimokratia #children #unaccompaniedminors #immigration #refugeecrisis #refugeechildren #refugee

Uma das partes mais incríveis dos abrigos para indígenas é que nele eles podem cozinhar sua própria comida no fogo a lenha. 🥰 #warao #indigena #povosindigenas #refugiados #migrantes #refugee #everydaybrasil #everydaylatinamerica
Metade das pessoas que estão saindo da Venezuela para sobreviver são crianças. 🙇🏽‍♀️🙇🏽‍♂️ Até mesmo etnias indígenas estão sofrendo a crise que se alastra, principalmente, no interior e regiões mais afastadas do país, onde nem comida, serviços ou transporte público está tendo. Ao conversar com a @carolzinhamira e aprender com suas pesquisas etnográficas e trabalho com indígenas, tem-se a conclusão de que é muito triste quando você para e pensa que esses povos originários estão perdendo algo de extrema importância para eles: o direito de ir e vir. Sempre que saem do abrigo, precisam pedir autorização e apresentar um crachá. #warao #migrantes #venezuelanos #refugiados #indigenas #indigenaswarao #everydaybrasil #everydaylatinamerica #brasil #norte #roraima #pacaraima #documentalphotography #brasilphotography #refugee #migrant #refugees #children

Feeling very happy at my volunteer work at Missao Paz (Mission Peace) at the Church Our Lady of Peace (Scalabrini Order) in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil. At the area where I volunteer (Work Axis), we are very proud to provide jobs for Migrants (immigrants, refugees, Stateless Seafares and Itinerants). Today I mediated 10 job positions for a construction company located in the city of São Paulo. 01 Togolese, 01 migrant from Cameroon, 01 from Burkina Faso and 07 Haitians were hired. Be all welcome to Brazil and I wish you all good luck. Missão Paz also provides Shelter, Legal Services, Documentation, Medical & Psychological Support, Education and other services to better assist the Migrants and mainly to provide them with dignity and rights. #refugeesinbrazil #somostodosimigrantes #weareallimmigrants #REFUNITE #IMmigrant #missaopaz #volunteerwork #ngo #immigrantsinbrazil #acnur #refugiadosnobrasil #refugiadoseumeimporto #refugiados #missãopaz #ethnography #conare #unhcr #refugee #multicultural #ethnic #etnografia #unrefugees #refugiadosbienvenidos #refugeeswelcome #refugeeswelcomehere #helprefugees #scalabrini #scalabrinianos

So much on my heart today after spending the last 24 hours in Clarkston, GA on a missionary vision trip. We ate traditional Nepali food handmade for us by a refugee Nepali family (Which is traditionally eaten only by your hands sitting on a rug) and heard their story about being raised from refugee camps and how they ended up going from hopeless and broken to making it to the United States where they now work in ministry and missions. Heard many different stories that would break your heart of struggles no human should have to endure. Facts - refugees are LEGAL to the United States (totally different than an immigrant) and many have been through horrors you couldn’t even imagine just trying to gain a better life for themselves and their children. (Sex trafficking, seeing loved ones murdered, suffering unimaginable loss to name just a few). Just in Clarkston, GA, there are 60 different languages spoken in a 1.1 mile radius. They are not a project but people, just like you and I, that need loved and supported. God calls us to love one another, of all backgrounds and races and differences. He loves you no more than he loves them. I am looking forward to finding ways to plug into this community and support these amazing people and the Send Relief staff that has stepped up for them. Please take time out and pray for them, realize that no matter how bad you currently think you have it there are people in much much worse situations out there and we as Americans are blessed beyond measure, also take time to check out the Send Relief website to see ways you can assist them with programs involving refugee assistance, foster care support, sex trafficking awareness programs, and disaster relief in Puerto Rico just to and a few. #sendrelief #refugee #clarkston #georgia #baptist #compassion #god #love #missions https://www.sendrelief.org/

A place that at first seems a simply beautiful sandy #beach in Northern France, instead stands as a poignant reminder of political turmoil, present and past. Gazing out towards the UK, it's tempting to point the finger of blame to boarders elsewhere. Yet conversely, see only #hope and #opportunity if you're a #refugee . Wherever you stand, there's no doubt an ominous presence lurks just beside us, a truth we willing ignore. Government funded police brutality are symptomatic of a larger xenophobia that fails to acknowledge an increasingly global world. #Migration is not a new phenomenon, yet neither is our #predjudice . Are we doomed for history to repeat as we remain willfully ignorant? Or shall we challenge the norms of what's been done before and beg to shift our focus, acknowledging the #vulture at our door? #natgeo100contest

Recently, I read “Refugee” by Alan Gratz for my school’s book club, and to be honest I was not a fan. Last year I read a lot of amazing historical fiction books that ended up being all-time favorites, so my expectations were a little high to say the least. Since “Refugee” is a middle grade novel, I guess I already knew that it wouldn’t reach my standards, but sadly it still fell very short for me. The book centers around three main characters: Josef, a Jewish boy who is escaping from Germany, Isabel, a Cuban girl who is fleeing to America, and Mahmoud, a Syrian boy who is attempting to escape his country. All three characters’ stories are set in different time periods, so they all eventually meet at the end. I thought that this was an interesting concept, but I had seen it done before beautifully, so, again, my expectations were sky high. To do this format, the point of view had to switch between characters, but I felt that it changed perspectives way too much. As soon as I got at least a little bit invested in the story of one character, it switched to another. This was really annoying and got in the way of fluid storytelling. There also wasn’t that much background information or detail in the novel. Everything was very plot based and way too action packed, so the writing couldn’t be that good. I felt as if I was hearing a news story: something with little depth, something I was reading just to know what happened, something that wasn’t about the writing but was about the plot. Because of this, there was also very little characterization. I didn’t connect to the characters, and I didn’t care about what happened to them. This made me not care about the story at all. Overall, even though the book did center on a very important subject matter, it could have been executed much, much better. Have you read “Refugee” by Alan Gratz? If so, tell me what you thought! ⭐️My Rating: 3/5 stars⭐️ • • • #booklove #booklover #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookaholic #bookworm #bookobsesses #fav #fave #favorite #favoritebook #favoritebooks #bookshelf #shelfie #book #books #read #reading #tbr #currentlyreading #historicalfiction #refugee #alangratz

I figured it’s a perfect day to wear the "It only takes Faith as small as a mustard seed" necklace. These are perfect for those days where you feel you are low on faith or want to be reminded of how powerful the smallest amount of faith can be. Luke 17:20 tells us that even faith as small as a mustard seed can move mountains. Nothing is impossible. Won't you join me in spreading just one seed of faith, hope, and the light of Jesus to those affected by the Greece Refugee Crisis? Ready to order?

“Many of our Refugee Support Volunteers stay connected with families for a very long time – you might just become part of the family.” Jo, our Pathways to Settlement Manager in Christchurch, pictured left, is getting household items ready for former refugees arriving to the city. 🏡 🛏️ New Zealand Red Cross Refugee Support Volunteers will help the new Kiwis settle in to their homes, find their way around, meet their neighbours, register with a doctor and navigate public transport. 🚌 “All of that can be really challenging – it’s about how we can support former refugees to make those challenges easier and bringing some humour into it. It’s about learning from each other along the way,” Jo says. Christchurch is preparing to welcome its first former refugees via the quota since the earthquakes and it’s not too late to get involved.

[There is no sound with this post] We’ve arrived in Kakuma, one of the largest refugee camps in the world, to sit down with Anuak who have lost their livelihoods to the rise of industrialized farming, the environmental degradation that has resulted from it, and shifting climate that has left so many with no other option than to flee their ancestral homelands. Before we begin sharing posts that testify to the ongoing displacement in Gambella, we’d like to take a moment to highlight the work of our partner organization in this project - Anywaa Survival Organization, a non-profit based in the UK, led by Anuak human rights activists dedicated to serving ‘people without a voice and deprived of their fundamental human rights in Gambella and beyond’. The ongoing forced, and often times violent, displacement of the Anuak from their traditional homelands in Gambella has been underreported at best and unreported a vast majority of the time. It is a classic case of traditional peoples living sustainably being attacked by systems of power that prioritize profit over people, and in this case, an unhindered industrial agricultural sector has unequivocally displaced thousands of traditional farmers and their families who have worked the fertile lands of Gambella since time immemorial. Anywaa Survival Organisation has been one of only a very few organizations, risking it all on the ground, that has been constantly amplifying the stories of land grabbing, climate induced-displacement, and violent attacks on Anuak communities. It is for this reason that policy-oriented organizations, like The Oakland Institute, Human Rights Watch,  and even The Third Generation Project are even aware of this dire situation, whose consequences will be felt by lands far beyond and generations to come. In times of grievous corporate and state unaccountability, we’re proud to be partnered with ASO for this project. . #Breakingthe4thWall #climatechange #climateinjustice #indigenous #Indigenouspeoples #agriculture #pastoralism #christianity #Anuak #Gambella #Ethiopia #HornofAfrica #climatejustice #environmentaljustice #traditionalpeoples #tradition #UN #refugee #internallydisplaced #Africa #disapora
