Transforming lives on four continents

Refugees & IDPs (issue 5/04)

"Sometimes our media make it seem that people are delighted to leave their own country. That's simplistic and misleading. Of course people terrified for their lives are glad if they've found safety. But they may have little else. Little money; little hope; little opportunity of getting life on a foundation; little comfort; little security. And, if they're not welcome, then even safety may not last. Displaced people - in their own country or another - are in a wretched situation."
