Bloggers Unite for Refugees

I have seen a lot of article about this “Bloggers Unite for Refugees” and I’m so glad that many bloggers have the heart to give a little of their time to write. Today, I’m offering a little space of my blog to give voice for more than 40 million voiceless refugees around the world.

What do we mean when we say refugees? According to the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, a refugee is a person who owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion, is outside the country of their nationality, and is unable to or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail him/herself of the protection of that country.

This ongoing problem of people torn from their homes is something that should, and must, concern us all, in order to find a common solution and bring back life and dignity to the millions suffering. This is a global issue that everyone should be aware of. An estimated 80% of the refugees are women and children and that’s what makes my heart torn into pieces. They often carry the heaviest burden of survival for themselves and their families. Women and adolescent girls in refugee settings are especially vulnerable to exploitation, rape, abuse and other forms of gender-based violence.

Children and youth deliberate to be the target of abuse, and easy prey to military recruitment and abduction. Usually, they miss out being on schools, having the opportunity to have good education for their future. Without proper education, they often struggle to support themselves and their families. I am a woman and I have a heart for children so I’m focusing my advocacy for the needs of these women and poor little ones.

We should be very thankful that we have our homes and our families. I believe that modern technology would be a great help to spread the information, understanding and action for this people. As a blogger, we are using one of these modern technologies so we have the best access to share our thoughts and be part of the global solution to this global problem. Let’s unite and make a difference. See this beautiful smiles again.
