Why Should You Believe In and Help the Refugee Crisis?


“We take in so few refugees worldwide. We resettle less than 0.1 percent. That 0.1 percent benefits us more than them. It dumbfounds me how the word “refugee” is considered something to be dirty, something to be ashamed of. They have nothing to be ashamed of.

We have seen advances in every aspect of our lives — except our humanity. There are 65.3 million people who have been forced out of their homes because of war — the largest number in history. We are the ones who should be ashamed.” ~Luma Mufleh

    • I think many people have gotten the wrong information/idea about refugees. It’s important to deal in facts vs fears, hence the purpose of the post. This Ted Talk really moved me emotionally and I wanted to share. Thanks for your feedback!
