|Phoebe Ackley- Kurdish refugees 2014
“In the midst of migrants in search of a better
life there are people in need of protection: refugees and asylum-seekers, women and children victims of trafficking…Many
move simply to avoid dying of hunger. When leaving is not an option but a necessity, this is more than poverty.”
- Antonio Guterres
UN High Commissioner on Refugees
"One does not ask of one who suffers: What is your country
and what is your religion? One merely says: You suffer, that is enough for me."
“I urge you to celebrate the
extraordinary courage and contributions of refugees past and present.…”
- Kofi Anan Secretary General of the United Nations
