World Refugee Day, 20 June – Ipoh
June 19, 2015 @ 8:00 am - June 20, 2015 @ 5:00 pm
Rose Virginie Good Shepherd Centre celebrated World Refuge Day with its residents.
– To introduce the challenges that refugees and migrants faced in their home countries and when escaping to other countries.
– To educate the residents on the definition and difference between ‘migrant’ and ‘refugee’.
– To honor the courage and strength of refugees who were forced to flee under the threat of persecution, conflict and violence.
– To instill a sense of gratitude in the residents
The residents then listed down on heart-shaped paper, five things that they were grateful for. They then pasted them on the mahjong paper to honor the courage and strength of refugees across the world. †
