Scrolling through some docos relating to Refugees and found this inspiring little video depicting a little walk in the lives of those living in a Refugee Camp in Darfur.

It’s a quickie, but a goodie!

Happy Refugee Day to all those around the world…

If you really want to get a hands on experience of what being a refugee might look like, check out the Refugee Realties which is a combined exhibition and simulation exercise that allows people to walk in the shoes of a refugee, and experience the realities of a refugee’s journey.

The Refugee Realities simulation exercise enrols people as inhabitants of an unnamed country from which they must flee. After travelling though dangers, they must cross an international border and learn how to live in a refugee camp. The simulation concludes with a debrief and discussion about what participants learnt, and what all Australians can do to support refugee and universal human rights, both at home and around the world.
