In the time it took you to read this sentence, three people were forced to abandon everything and flee their homes in search of safety. Today, war, violence, and persecution is driving more people from their homes than ever before. There are 70.8 million forcibly displaced people worldwide. And tens of thousands of people are fleeing for their lives every day.
“It’s difficult to ask for help. When your child is sick and you can’t afford medicine, or when a day passes by where your kids tell you that they’re hungry, but you don’t have enough money to cook for them or give them anything to eat. This is very difficult. I can endure it, but my children can’t…
But the most important thing here is safety… it’s good to sleep without having to worry about it. Not to worry about a bombardment or war or anything else.”
Noura, Syrian refugee mother living in Lebanon.
