UNHCR: IZBEGLICE – POMOZIMO IM DA NAPREDUJU, A NE DA PREŽIVLJAVAJU

Kada je Kancelarija Visokog komesarijata Ujedinjenih nacija za izbeglice (UNHCR) počela da radi 1. januara 1951. godine, dobila je trogodišnji mandat da pomogne milionima izbeglica u Evropi koje su ostale bez svojih domova ili bile u azilu posle rata. U to vreme, tri godine se smatralo dovoljno dugim periodom da se problem izbeglica reši jednom zauvek.

Danas, UNHCR brine o 16,1 milionu izbeglica širom sveta. Više od 50% čine deca, a šest miliona njih je školskog uzrasta.

Republika Srbija trenutno pruža utočište za 7.000 izbeglica, tražilaca azila i migranata sa Bliskog Istoka, uz rešavanje problema najugroženijih izbeglica i interno raseljenih lica iz 1990tih. 

Izbeglice poseduju veštine, imaju ideje, nadanja i snove. Oni su takođe snažni, otporni i kreativni, i poseduju energiju i volju da uobliče sopstvenu sudbinu, samo ako dobiju priliku.

Ten-year-old Kamala raises her hand at school in Golzow, a village on the German-Polish border where her family have settled after fleeing Latakia in Syria. Their arrival boosted numbers in this shrinking village and helped the local school achieve the minimum class size. ; Since arriving in 2015, a group of Syrian refugee children and their family have become an indispensable part of community life in Golzow. Halima and Fadi fled Syria with their three children, Hamza, Bourhan and Kamala in 2012 and made their way across Europe. With Golzow’s population having shrunk to just 835 people, the school failed to make up the pupil numbers required for a reception class for the first time since it opened in 1961. Golzow’s mayor Frank Schütz came up with an inspired solution. He asked local authorities to find refugee families with children who might want to move into one of Golzow’s many empty apartments. Sixty kilometres away, Halima and her young family had just arrived in Brandenburg, exhausted after a gruelling three years on the road from Syria to Germany. They jumped at the chance. The three children joined the reception class, pushing numbers over the required minimum of 15. It was win-win, the year group was saved and the Syrians got a new home.
