Everyone's story deserves to be told — especially refugees

When we tell our stories, we are reminded that people of all cultures and backgrounds share common hopes and dreams. Refugees are no different. And when we believe that everyone's story has value, we can help create a more compassionate world — even in the most horrific circumstances.

Here is a glimpse into the lives of three refugees who have escaped violence and persecution. Thanks to caring, generous Americans, USA for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, will continue to share their stories — and help provide the protection, shelter, food and other humanitarian assistance they need.
