Rohingya refugees in the camps of Bangladesh are being cared for in many ways. One of the ways is through education.
Your support harnesses the strengths of community members to improve health. That means educating refugees to pass along health messages to their neighbors. Training local doctors and nurses so they can be more effective. Making sure people know when and how to get to a doctor or nurse for care.
"شعرت بألمهم... لم أستطع تحمل الأحزان التي يمرون بها"
خالدة، امرأة من بنغلاديش تبلغ من العمر 26 عاماً، شاركت طعام عائلتها ومطبخها مع 36 عائلة لاجئة من #الروهينغا ، حتى أنها قطعت أكثر من 250 شجرة فواكه مثمرة في مزرعتها حتى تستضيف العائلات.
#قدرة_الإنسانية#تستطيع_التأثير - “I felt their pain … I could not bear the sorrows that they were going through.” Khaleda, a 26-year-old Bangladeshi woman, shared her family’s food and kitchen with 36 #Rohingya#refugee familes. She even cut down more than 250 fruit-bearing trees on her farm to accomodate the families.
I used to think me and my brother had it hard growing up as we didn’t have much. But I can't imagine what my parents went through to get where they are today.
My mother was born here in a mud-hut. No water supply, no toilets. Nothing. She escaped a genocide: a country that was destroying her people. Left everything behind. Fled as a refugee to a new country where she didn’t know the language nor culture. The only thing she owned was motivation. Her fighting spirit is the reason I am here today and on my grind; to have her living like the queen she is! This is what you call making it from the bottom! 💯🌎 #eelam
It’s a shitty feeling. Witnessing her cry from one side of the screen. Even if I travel to her- I can’t help her in the physical. Not directly. I hope these #children who make it out #alive can turn the tide. I hope they watch over each other and share. Since our greater tribe has failed. We are all #refugee . The #greed in this game is real. War is a big business. I cannot imagine their trauma. This war is heartless.
Not even god hears us?Let it be known that some of these people deserve to burn in hell for their trespassing. What’s a law? These military regimes break all international codes and comit the war crimes upon humanity. If you look around there is a silent war in our communities. War on #food#water and the enslavement of the poor.
#99tp1#genocide they tell me it’s a waste of time to #care but imagine if everyone did? Soldiers are just the people who are going cold in the street trying to reintegrate into their sense of what it is to be human. #society This little girl is brave. And I apologize that any of my money serves this fucked up government. Don’t y’all think this shit is just thievery ? Look at capitalism and consumerism. Rape the world and it’s people for profit. Heartbreaking #prayforsyria#prayfortheworld#thewickedgonnaburn
Today, I am throwing it back 70 years ago.
It was 1948, when a mass exodus of refugees occurred. That was how the story of my life started - forty years before I was ever born.
Pictured is my great-grandmother, who was forced to flee Jerusalem in 1948 while carrying a child in her belly, with the hope that she will be returning very soon. On the 24th of February, 2016, she passed away (الله يرحمها) at the age of 87 in Amman, Jordan, where she had settled down 68 years after leaving her home in Palestine.

In Lebanon #TakeYourChildToWorkDay " looks very different than it does here. Instead of dressing up in a suit or commuting to an office, #Syrian#refugee children are already working alongside their parents every day in order to help provide for their families. Here you can see young workers gathering potatoes in a field.
The world is experiencing the highest numbers of displaced people ever recorded at over 65 million.⠀
There's not a whole lot we can do, but we can all play a small part. Get informed about refugees around the world and why they are being displaced. Donate money to organizations who are on the ground in war torn areas. Plan a trip to volunteer overseas. Befriend refugees in your city. Or even pray for the conflict to stop so that people don't have to leave their homes anymore.⠀
Recent addition to the collection : #HansFeibusch 1950 - the only known oil on canvas preparatory painting for the #Chichester Cathedral Baptism which was one of the most important mural commissions of the artists life and is probably his best known work. This is the earliest of only two known paintings of the first proposed design for the #ChichesterCathedral#Baptism - the second one is a refined version in gouache on paper. There is one known biro sketch of the same composition but several more in gouache and graphite of the second and final design which didn’t include the angel on the left. Hans Feibusch completed the mural the following year. For anyone who may have forgotten, Hans Feibusch was a #German#Jewish#Refugee who arrived in England in 1933 and died aged 99 in 1998. He was the last known surviving artist who had work shown in the Degenerate Art Exhibition of 1937. #GermanExpressionism#Hero

Kutupalong-Balukhali Expansion Site is the world’s most densely populated refugee settlement. The mega-settlement was built in just five months and now houses over 600,000 Rohingya refugees.
With this new influx of residents comes new needs. Basic necessities like food, water and shelter are in high demand. UNHCR helps provide over 16 MILLION LITERS of fresh water to Rohingya refugees in the settlement every day. 💧💧💧
And support from USA for UNHCR donors helps make it all possible!
I thought I kissed the sun in Djibouti not until they said it gets hotter. Our diversity should be embraced not by just visiting each other but appreciating how far we have all come. We then can be more determined to achieve much more by loving more exploring more and thrive by forgiving each other much much more. .
We get by with a little help from our friends #Beatles#Love Friends join us on Saturday from 6-10pm for an unforgettable night of food, drinks, live music and art - raising awareness for this amazing cause! Grab and friend and join us for ONLY 25/person!! LINK IN BIO 🤟🏼

Lots of talent and enthusiasm for this beautiful art & expression project launched in Niger, with refugees evacuated from Libya.
Following training in personal expression, refugees put their ideas on the walls of our interview centre in the form of murals. The philosophy of care is an essential element of UNHCR's response in Niger. We provide a series of different activities for the refugees awaiting settlement including sports, language courses, dance and art, with a music training project to follow.

The Global Read Aloud Project is one of the most amazing projects to have your class do! Back in September, we did a Long Walk to Water and connected with 3 classes around the country and world. The next book for the new school year is going to be Refugee by Alan Gratz, but I wanted to read it now to my kids so they wouldn’t miss out. This book is absolutely amazing!! My kids are so diverse and are seeing themselves reflected in this book. My students come from all over the world and are totally sucked into this story about kids their own age. I even had a kid beg me not to keep reading because he was going to miss school the next day and didn’t want to miss anything! If you’re looking for an engaging book, this is definitely for you. #globalreadaloudproject#gra#alangratz#refugee#readaloud#fifthgrade
Syrian schoolgirl Manar has only ever watched cricket on television. This past week, she finally got to bat with her own hands.
She was one of around 1,700 Syrian and Jordanian students who got to experience a day of cricket, when UK charity @cwbafrica (Cricket Without Boundaries) came to their school in Mafraq to introduce the sport.
The first-timer was a natural as she tried her hand at the sport. “I tried to hit the ball with the bat - I’ve only seen that on TV," she said. "I’ve never tried it before, and I love it." Sport remains a powerful psychological support for children who have fled war, as the time of activity saw everyone having the chance to let loose. Game on!
In just a few days, you can learn so much from a group of people. We finished our last training and are headed home. These young men and women trying out to be coaches for the Refugees United Soccer Academy were a blast to work with. The two coaches we selected, Irene and Anaclet, will be strong role models for boys and girls in their camp. We hope we can find support to offer more opportunities to the others that want to work as coaches for the tens of thousands of kids in the camp. #iact#iactbecause#weacttogether#withrefugees#iacttz#refugee#football#soccer
Most of the #Burmese#migrants in #Thailand are not allowed #refugee status and live in abysmal conditions at #Rashada Pier, leaving the children with limited access to schooling and healthcare, #Phuket , #Thailand . This boy is swimming, as many of the children do, in the filthy stagnant water that surrounds their home. The #outhouse that is used as their #toilet is in back of him. It is estimated that over two million Burmese refugees live in Thailand, with a high percentage living on the popular island of Phuket. Behind the expensive hotels and beaches packed with tourists hides a large community of Burmese migrants trying to carve out a living in the fishing industry while living in filthy #slums . These Burmese have fled the oppressive militant government of their country and are illegally smuggled over the northern Thai/Burma border by Thai traffickers with the promise of a better life. Many Burmese arrive without proper documentation or have their passports and identity cards stolen and sold by the trafficker. With no identification these migrants are unable to return to Burma. They are bound to their landlords and bosses and are often victims of police bribes. Because of the poor Thai/Burmese relations and loss of identity these migrants are not technically allowed refugee status. This leaves them with no rights to schooling for their children or healthcare for their families. They are forced to live in limbo without a country. #HumanTribe @natgeocreative
Tom Spits, directeur van de Beatrixschool in Haarlem, zocht een goed doel als invulling voor de cultuurweken van zijn school. In twee weken tijd hebben de kinderen van de Beatrixschool in Haarlem €3.800,- ingezameld voor Connect by Music en daar zijn we waanzinnig blij mee. Hiermee kunnen we weer 38 gitaren aanschaffen waarmee de kinderen op Lesbos in de vluchtelingen kampen binnen nu en twee weken les gaan krijgen. #gitaar#guitar#refugeechildren#refugee#refugees#music#musictherapy @
A friend I made during a hospital visit in Calais. A refugee from Afghanistan who spoke only his local dialect and a little Italian. We drove him back to the camp that same day and remained friends throughout my time spent there as a volunteer, even though we had a massive language barrier. His eyes were full of strength and hope but also hardship and pain. He was always very protective over me and hospitable, inviting me in for food or tea every time he saw me walk by the area mainly occupied by Afghan and Sudanese men, also where his tent (or temporary shelter) stood.
The question I was asked the most by the refugees during my time volunteering was a welcoming "would you like to join us for some tea?"
It's how I made life long friends with some of the bravest men I've ever met. Also how I ended up spending most of my time running to the toilet cubicles desperate to pee all the time !
