“Doesn’t the world see the suffering of the millions of refugees of Palestinians who have been living in exile around the world or in refugee camps for the past 60 years? No state, no home, no identity, no right to work. Doesn’t the world see this injustice?” (Ismail Haniyeh). This is how many of the universal refugees feel. There are millions of refugees all over the world in similar situations. This is also similar to how Ha feels in the book “Inside Out and Back Again.” Ha’s life mirrors the universal refugee experience because many lives are turned inside out, they have to get used to their new living arrangements, and they have to adapt to a new world.
This essay is about the universal refugee experience and the hardships that they have to go through on their journey. Ha from Inside Out and Back Again and other refugees from the article “Children of War” all struggle with the unsettling feeling of being inside out because they no longer own the things that mean the most to them. Ha and the other refugees all encounter similar curiosities of overcoming the finding of that back again peaceful consciousness in the “new world” that they are living in .
Similarily examined in GBTWYCF, the participant’s genuine “refugee experience” allows them to identify social understanding about the fact of other people’s lifestyles and how they withstand the most severe of individual adversities. An extensive structure taken of Raye weeping followed by a remote taken of the moon enhances her concern towards Maisara “I’ve had issues holding child birth through…I do know where she’s arriving from…” examines how by your same circumstances as others, people are able to empathise.
They have a couple of activities that can be beneficial to the Kalamazoo refugee community. Nathan, the president of the Refugee Outreach of Kalamazoo in Western Michigan University, he said “Our duty is to make sure that refugees are getting the support that they deserve in their new home.” He added “since it’s the election year, we see how some politicians are dehumanizing refugees and giving the wrong picture to the American people to get advantage of the voters who are not happy by the current political situation.” Raising awareness about refugees who are resettled to the Kalamazoo area is the number one goal of the organization, although some refugees from Syria arrived by the beginning of the year some more will be coming by the end of the year and our hope is to provide them a welcoming
Refugee’s lives turn “inside out” by separation, no choices, and traveling. Lives are turned inside out by no choice in what they want. In the article, “Refugees: Who, Where, Why?” it says, “Since early times large groups of people have been forced to flee their homelands.” Overall this tells me even if they wanted to stay with all of the chaos going on they couldn’t. Separation also turns lives inside out. I know this because in the poem “Watch over us page 50,” it says,” father watches over us even if he’s not here…Uncle son tells us to be ready any day.” This explains that with father not being there, hopes can be down and they can struggle more. Traveling for Ha also turns them inside out. In the poem, “Last Respects.” Page 85 it says,”
Have you ever really thought about what a refugee is? Before Ha became a refugee she was a very stubborn person. Page three of Inside Out and Back Again says, “I decided to wake up before dawn and tap my big toe to the tile floor first,” (Lai 3). She was also sometimes greedy with the food that her mom trusted her to buy. Ha also liked to speak her mind about everything even if it sometimes came out rude. A refugee is a person who has been forced to leave their country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster. Ha and many other refugee lives have turned inside out and back again when they are forced to leave their homes and start a new life.
As a volunteer at the RefugeeOne, organization, I have learned about how does the nonprofit organization brands itself, and how do they receive funding. RefugeeOne not only is incorporated as an independent nonprofit organization, but also it is a refugee resettlement agency that provides a full range of services to refugees resettled in the Chicago area.
Is the U.S. considered anti-immigrant or just playing it safe? As you read these two accounts, you will come to find out that they both discuss the issue and hardships of refugees and war. A refugee is a person who has been forced to leave their country because of a natural disaster like the Holocaust or an ISIS attack. A big issue that is dicussed in these articles is the amount of refugees being let into the country.
I remember the day the U.N. Refugee Agency declared my family refugees and resettled us to make the United States of America our new home.
Do you know what Refugees are what they do how they live and how they survive. Refugees are people that have to leave there home all because of war, they have to leave and find new ones far away. Before war happened in Vietnam Ha was different she was sneaky because when she went to get groceries she would by fried dough for herself, and she was mean because when she would hide her brothers sandals when she got mad at them. The title of the book makes you wonder a little by the words inside out and back again, the author Thanhha Lai had a good idea for making this book for a history lesson. Refugees like Ha and her family turn back again when they find better home like Ha she stared understanding more.
I find myself often remembering almost everything about other people. As well as remembering, I put their needs before my own. Making sure they are comfortable and happy. This leads me to go the extra mile for them. I helped in a very important church service project. There was a refugee family that my church was sponsoring to pay for housing and living necessities. We coordinated a successful yard sale and raised money to buy this family the many things they needed. The joyful tears of the family, made this service worth all the hard work and planning. I was a part of organizing a eventful birthday party. When I was younger, I helped plan a surprise birthday party for my brother. We got a bounce house, cake, balloons, and of course presents.
I am interested in an opportunity to intern with the African Refugee Development center. My goal is to help people meet their greatest challenges in their darkest times and empower them about change and opportunities. Now that I have finished my first degree, I am ready to broaden my range of volunteer work before I apply for a masters degree in psychology. I truly believe my purpose is to help others. I believe it would be an excellent opportunity to develop my interest in social change and psychology, a field I wish to study and pursue professionally in the future. If the African Refugee Development center has a need for a dedicated Intern, I would be thrilled to have the opportunity to aid.
During the refugee crisis there was some international governmental and non-governmental aid for the refugees in the country still those 350 000 – 400 000 (vidi pogore) were enormous burden for Macedonian economy. That was third reason for accommodating refugees in camps instead incorporating them in the society. Their potential influence on Macedonians economy and establishing refugees’ camps can be observed thru the possible impact on local and national economy. Because these two factors are very closely connected they will be elaborated and overviewed simultaneously. Refugees escaping from ethnic cleansing were arriving in Macedonia only with few necessities, and were relaying on Aid from host nation. In that time the biggest economy issue for Macedonian government was unemployment, statistic said that around 32% of the population was unemployed, or around 350 000 people. So people in order to survive were working on black market, and without insurance. At some level that was tolerated from the government because it was providing existence for people and social peace in the country. Black market and working without insurance had a big influence for local and national economy. Major concern for government if refugees were incorporated into the society was that these 350 000 – 400 000 refugees, in conditions of no income was more than possible that they would seek for job in the country on black market. Also around 50 000-60 000 refugees were accommodated mostly in families
I experienced many different cultures, ethnicities and traditions when my family lived in Thailand. We lived in a Refugee camp and it was not like an America society. Every month, a volunteer group from a big city would aid every family in the refugee camp with bags of rice depending on how many people are in your family. There were about ten schools in the camp which were public schools and Catholic schools. Schools and houses were built out of bamboo and trees, and the buildings don't last more than a decade. Life was not easy in Thailand. Not every parent had a job and they found other ways to make money to provide for their families. There were many cultures and different ethnicities living in the same area and our neighbors spoke different languages and they were from different ethnic groups. There are many holidays and cultural traditions that we celebrate every year by dancing, playing music, and having big festivals.
I learned of the movement by reading about the refugee crisis online. Another way I learned about the movement was seeing news coverage surrounding the refugee crisis and people boarding boats in treacherous waters desperately trying to escape their home countries. Media and other forms of representation played an essential role in covering the refugee crisis movement. Depending on the news outlet I often saw how different political ideologies infiltrated the facts about the movement. From my viewpoint I believe that there is a target market for the campaign. The movement seems to be appealing to a wide range of groups. The campaign appeals to most age groups, it calls for people to get involved for all different ages. There seems to be one geographical region that has been particular called upon to help the movement. The geographical region that seems to be targeted the most is countries in the Mediterranean area. This seems to be true because that area is a central location that many of the refugees have some, but difficult time accessing. I feel as if the movement is asking me to do several things. For instances, the movement is asking me to lay down prior prejudices I may have had and to be more empathetic to the human suffering that is taking place in the refugee crisis. Another thing that I feel that the movement is asking me to do is to have “open arms” to refugees in whatever compacity that I am able. I have partially been able to do what the movement is asking me to
