World Refugee Day - PNA

Project name:         PNA (Protection Need Assessment)

Event Title:             World Refugee Day

Event date:             20/06/2014

Often classified unfairly with economic migrants, refugees flee their country not for economic gain but to escape persecution, the threat of imprisonment and even threats to their lives. They need a safe haven where they can recover from mental and physical trauma and rebuild their hopes for a better future. The intolerance that is often at the root of internal displacement and refugee flows is also present in some of the countries that refugees flee to. Instead of finding empathy and understanding they are often met with mistrust or scorn.

20th June 2014 -- The purpose of World Refugee Day is to draw attention to the plight of refugees, celebrate their courage and resilience and renew commitment to solving refugee problems. It is also an opportunity to recognize the contributions that refugees make to the countries that host them.For the purpose, one day event was held at PNA office to express & celebrate “work refugee day” with refugees in Quetta, Pakistan. Approximately 36 to 40 refugees participated in the event & they all eagerly attended the session & shared their problems. The purpose of event was to express the view as “let's not forget that someday in the future any one of us could be knocking at a stranger's door hoping to find a safe and friendly shelter. We should extend refugees the same kind of welcome we would like to receive if we were in their position. While most refugees want to go home, some cannot safely return. But wherever they are, refugees will always strive to pick up the pieces and start over. The courage and determination demonstrated during their darkest hours will serve them well in rebuilding a new life. On World Refugee Day, let us honor them for these qualities and recognize the richness and diversity they bring to our societies.
