More than *70.8M people are forcibly displaced worldwide, while the COVID19 pandemic has made them invisible to the media. The violation of their human rights is a daily practice.

“For refugees to reach their destination freely and safely”
Today, it is time to acknowledge, reflect and act accordingly.
“To think that by making the situation on the Greek islands inhumane will keep refugees away, is an ineffective and harmful tactic. They will come as long as there are wars in their countries, as long as their children are in danger, as long as there are droughts and floods. We have to accept this and see it as an opportunity and not as a threat.”
