Millions of families have fled their homes to escape war or human rights abuses. Millions of mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers – who are also students, musicians, cooks, and so much more. Refugees are ordinary people, living through extraordinary times. Please support us introducing these remarkable individuals to others.


Each day violence and insecurity forces thousands of families to flee their homes. Mothers, fathers, sons and daughters have to run for their lives enduring uncertainty, hardship and loss. Despite all this, they have stories of courage, survival and resilience to tell.
