Christian shows off his skills while his brother Daniel look on. The brothers are former refugees from Colombia. They resettled in Nelson earlier this year and Red Cross volunteer, John, was quick to sign them up to the local football club. Now they’re integral members of their new teams and flourishing.
Refugees across Indonesia join local communities to commemorate Indonesian Independence Day on 17 August. In South Sulawesi, refugees took part in a mural competition, while in North Sumatra and Riau, refugees participated in traditional Independence Day games. #WithRefugees#UNHCR#UNHCRIndonesia

Students getting ready for their exams at a primary school in Nymanzi refugee settlement in Northern Uganda. Despite their age, they are still in elementary school due to lack of school and education in South Sudan, as continuing conflict in their country continues to affect the lives of millions of people.

According to United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, as of this week, the number of South Sudanese refugees in Uganda has reached ONE MILLION. That is one million too many. That’s why Food for the Hungry walks alongside families and individuals who are part of the world’s worst refugee situation since World War II.
Thankful to have spent the last few days in Harrisburg with my colleagues from around the state learning from each other and standing together after a very tough year. There's so much hate in the world, and we have to fight against it with everything we have. It is our responsibility to stand up to hate and create a welcoming environment for all people. I believe in love, and I believe in my work so much. #withrefugees#healthcareisahumanright
Yesterday we marked the bleakest of milestones: barbaric violence has forced one million South Sudanese refugees to seek safety in Uganda.
While Uganda may be the scene of the fastest growing refugee crisis in the world but it hasn’t stopped it from keeping its doors and hearts open to people in need.
Today we ask you to stand in solidarity with all South Sudanese who’ve been forced from their homes and to thank generous host nations like Uganda, for its progressive approach to welcoming refugees. UNHCR/ @osejiro #Uganda#SouthSudan#RefugeesWelcome#Refugees#WithRefugees#UGsolidarity
Big smiles in Pagirinya refugee settlement, where South Sudanese refugees have found safety in Uganda.
.#Uganda is now home to more refugees than any other country in #Africa. There is an urgent need for the international community to match Uganda’s generosity. Stand #WithRefugees today by signing our petition (link in bio) or making a contribution at donate.unhcr.org UNHCR/ @jordi.matas
Playing while mom learns.
This little boy is keeping busy while his mom skills up in baking, knitting, and jewellery making at one of our centres for refugee women from South Sudan. The women also receive psychosocial support and sexual and gender based violence awareness and counselling.
Today marks 1 million refugees who have had to flee Somalia. I've mentioned this in passing before, but today we finally have our contract! I am helping plan a great event to help feed children across the world (and they do send a lot of food to Somalia), where you get to actually participate in the packing of the food! It will be November 5 so stay tuned for more information. I am so excited! So brace yourselves those of you who only like photos of my face, because there's a lot more of this coming. Plus after that I'm going to Africa to do field work so again, a lot more of this content is coming. If you'd like to learn more about the organization there is a link in my bio #linkinbio#onlylinksiwilldo#Repost@fmsc_org

Today(17 August 2017), 5 Afghan young boys aged 12-17 with mascular dystrophy were invited to a gym.
Today they realized that even as they can only move a finger, still they can play exciting games.
Their mothers got hope that life can be still meaningful for their youn boys. #refugeecrisis #withrefugees #education #refugees #refugee #education4all
"Going from home is the heaviest burden that gods and humans bend." - Agnes Miegel
Found in Warendorf (Germany). This plate is made of the Material of old bells from (old) East-Germany after World War 2. Refugees from this part brought this pieces of the bells to their new home.
But Miegel is a difficult person. Her opinion and doing was Pro-Hitler. She never found a distance to this time of her life. #ww2#refugees#withrefugees#bell#warendorf
Hoje presenciamos um marco terrível: 1 milhão de sul-sudaneses foram foçados a se deslocar em virtude da violência brutal, e são agora refugiados que buscam segurança em #Uganda.
Enquanto a Uganda é o cenário da crise que cresce mais rapidamente no mundo, o país não deixou de abrir as portas e receber pessoas que necessitam de proteção.
Hoje é um dia para sermos solidários com todos os sul-sudaneses que sofreram essas rupturas extremas, e agradecer nações como a Uganda, que respondem com receptividade os refugiados.
Summer is over soon
But we are excited to start our new semester at the Refugee Centre! IELTS preparation classes and French classes are starting in September! Head to our website to register!! Link in bio

# #Regrann from @refugees - Tabu Sunday has been symbolically named the one millionth South Sudanese refugee to arrive in Uganda. She travelled by foot with her aunt, twin sister Rena and little brother Emmanuel to Imvepi settlement. Eager to become a doctor and help others, Tabu continues to go to school despite the challenges the local community faces with overcrowded classes and lack of study materials.
Uganda is home to the world’s fastest growing refugee crisis. The country has welcomed an unprecedented surge in refugee numbers with open arms, maintaining open borders to people fleeing war and violence. Host communities have shown exceptional generosity, however, the sheer scale of the influx is imposing excessive pressure on local infrastructure and resources.
