A refugee is someone leaving home for safety for a variety of direct and indirect reasons. Refugee lives have become extremely difficult during Covid-19. Social distancing is impossible in a camp; and the restrictions on travel make finding a safe home even harder.
Refugees can be forgotten during a pandemic when people are focused on thinking about how they can manage and of their closest loved ones and so it felt important to bring awareness to life as a refugee during Refugee Week.
Refugee Week importantly raises awareness on all types of refugees; in camp, in rural settlement, in urban settlement and those who were once refugees and have a background as a refugee; like myself.
