World Refugee Day: We must not get used to human tragedy

With the occasion of World Refugee Day on June 20th:

Come and engage in discussions with refugees from the camps and their communities, sharing the challenges they face in their daily lives. Let us sit down and open our hearts, discussing the ‘whys’ that concern us, especially after the recent tragic event. Join us to listen firsthand to the personal stories of these individuals who have experienced the long and arduous journey of displacement, also known as the ‘refugee journey.’ Together, we may find some answers to those ‘whys’ and question marks that are difficult to address in countless television and political debates. You are all welcome!
