The documentary series Between Lives details the process of refugees when the flee their home and seek safety.

Meet Abdul, Farida and their children – one of the families you are helping to support – as they settle into Za’atari Camp, Jordan after fleeing conflict in Syria. In the first episode of seven, UNHCR Community Services Officer, Ihab Shaban, explains how the registration process is the first and most important step in helping refugees.

‘The Journey’ is calling for global support of the Refugee Teams competing at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The Refugee Olympic and Paralympic athletes have a story like no other. ‘The Journey’ tells the dramatised story of a refugee woman who is forced to flee her home to escape conflict, violence and persecution. Her arduous journey to freedom isn’t an easy one and her life is constantly on the line. But eventually, having reached safety, she stops running away from something and starts running towards something; a medal. It highlights the power of sport to rebuild lives and bring hope and change to the lives of those forced to flee.

How UNHCR helps refugees and internally displaced persons

UNHCR Canada has produced a speaker series, REF Talks Canada, featuring prominent refugees or those refugees who have made a large contribution to Canada.

As first of its kind, this speaker series hopes to connect people with personal stories of refugees and celebrate together their success, contributions, and accomplishments in their host country. It celebrates the resilience of refugees, captures the humanitarian spirit of Can­adians, and gives us a chance to engage deeply with refugee experiences.
