Volunteering in Refugee Camp

23/10/21 06:02:07PM

According to the  UN High Commissioner on Refugees , there are more than 65 million forcibly-displaced persons in the world right now. That’s higher than the population of most nations! Although the Syrian refugee crisis has been prominent in the mainstream media recently, there are people fleeing from other countries like Burma, Burundi, Tibet, Afghanistan, Turkey, North Korea, and Somalia.

Driven out by war or political or religious persecution, refugees form a sizable population of people in need, meaning there’s much work to be done for those willing to step up and volunteer. Volunteers can be critical aids in helping refugees integrate into a new culture or improving the quality of life in refugee camps themselves.
