Refugee Voices humanising refugees through platforming their voices and having their stories heard.
From success stories of refugee entrepreneurs to hearing what life was once like in their home countries. Humanising refugees is a mission we believe is vital. It is estimated that there are 26 million refugees worldwide, 10% of whom are living in the EU. With the rise in immigration, we have also seen a rise in far-right anti-immigration rhetoric.
Data has shown a sharp rise in hate crime in the UK with 76% of hate crimes being racially biased, and global trends have shown a decline intolerant attitudes towards immigrants. By showing the people behind the numbers, we hope to tackle far-right narratives and support refugees to navigate the incredibly complex and challenging decision to leave their home countries.
