The 20th of June marks World Refugee Day. But what is a refugee anyway?
The UN (United Nations) describes a refugee as someone who has been forced to flee his or her country because of persecution, war, or violence. But these ads shows us that being a refugee takes so much more than just a war. Being a refugee takes gut to leave your country, takes patience to learn a new language, faith that people in the foreign field your heading to are tolerant and hope that one day you’ll make it back to your land.
1 It's great being a refugee right?
Instead of worrying about cleaning and doing the laundry a refugee's only worry is shelter and food.
2 Normal Problems
Refugees don't want to worry about a safe heaven. They wanna worry about normal problems, for example laundry mishaps.
3 Run to Live
Refugees are guaranteed to win, when the finish line guarantees their livelihood.
4 Be a Lifeline to Those in Need
This is a better take on the classical give a hand slogan. Instead, they show you the lifeline that's in your hand meaning that one should always give a hand. Via Humanity & Inclusion.
5 Give them a Chance
Refugees may seem like an economical burden but when given a chance they might just save you from an economic crisis.
6 Being a Refugee Takes Courage
Running away from your country seems like a logical choice when there is a war but it's not so easy. Leaving everything you ever knew is gut wrenching but refugees still do it because they are that strong.
