OUR THEMES

THIS MONTH'S THEME

REFUGEE CARE

According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, a refugee is someone who has been forced to flee from his or her country because of persecution, war, or violence. Governments normally guarantee the basic human rights and physical security of their citizens, but when people become refugees this safety net disappears. Refugees fleeing war or persecution are often in a very vulnerable situation. They have no protection from their own state, and in many cases it is often their own government that is threatening to persecute them. If other countries do not let them in, and do not protect and support them once they arrive, then they may be condemning them to an intolerable situation where their basic rights, security, and in some cases their lives, are in danger. 

A recent study by the UNHCR showed that there are over 22 million refugees worldwide (the largest number since World War II). This is a global humanitarian issue that is widespread, and needs to be addressed with sustainable solutions. 

In the month of July, Kutoa will be partnering with organizations who are working to support and assist refugees in order to help them get back on their feet and give them a safe place to be. We have three very different approaches to sustainable solutions for refugee care.

  • Providing skills and counselling to help Iraqi refugees become employable in the country they will immigrate to.
  • Helping Syrian refugees resettle back home.
  • Welcoming Rohingya refugees who have survived the perilous boat crossing from large internment camps in Bangladesh, to make Malaysia their final home. 

Take time to decide the sustainable solution you want to support and cast your vote!
