Resettlement is a multi-faceted journey that will educate and engage workers and volunteers in variety of complex political, social and economic dynamics. Sometimes, as we get caught up in some of the larger issues, we lose a sense of balance as to the overall work we are all endeavoring to accomplish.
For years, the Cultural Orientation Resource Center (COR) has been a reliable source of information that helps us to better welcome the stranger into our midst, and this time, they have come out with a video that helps us to understand the refugee’s journey. The following link will take you to a video that shows some of the difficulties, some stories of resilience and mostly, the real-life faces of people who share of when they were once refugees. There are also many useful tools for reflection and discussion.
Hope you enjoy it!
