CNDH and UNHCR-Morocco commemorate World Refugee Day 2015

The National Human Rights Council (CNDH) and the UN refugee agency UNHCR commemorate the World Refugee Day from 18 to 20 June 2015. The 2015 World Refugee Day Campaign tells the human side of the refugee plight and aims to bring the public closer to the refugee story, showing refugees as “ordinary people living through extraordinary times”.

 

About World Refugee Day, June 20 2015

On the World Refugee Day, June 20, UNHCR commemorates the strength and resilience of the more than 60 million people around the world forced to flee their homes due to war or human rights abuses.

The 2015 World Refugee Day Campaign aims to bring the public closer to the human side of the refugee story by sharing stories of hope and resilience from displaced people. These stories will highlight the common links we all share with refugees, returnees, IDPs and resettled refugees.

The Campaign micro-site www.refugeeday.org features stories from refugees who describe in their own words their own passions and interests; cooking, music, poetry, or sports. Through their testimonials UNHCR aims to show that these are ordinary people living through extraordinary times.

 

The Campaign in Morocco

To commemorate the World Refugee Day in Morocco, CNDH and UNHCR team up to stage two exhibition stalls in Rabat-Ville and Casa Port train stations. The stalls will be an opportunity to raise awareness about refugees and refugee rights. CNDH, UNHCR, the representatives of Ministry of Moroccans Living Abroad and Migration Affairs and refuges themselves will be meeting with and bringing the Moroccan public closer to the stories of refugees. It will also be an opportunity for the refugees to meet with the public and tell their stories in their own words.

The East-West Foundation, a UNHCR partner, will organize several workshops and activities to commemorate the World Refugee Day in its intercultural centers in Rabat and Oujda.
