NEW BOOK IN THE #CEDLALIBRARY
From strangers to neighbors : post-disaster resettlement and #communitybuilding in #Honduras / #RyanAlaniz#Naturaldisasters , the effects of #climatechange , and political upheavals and war have driven tens of millions of people from their homes and spurred intense debates about how governments and nongovernmental organizations (#NGOs ) should respond with long-term #resettlement strategies. Many resettlement efforts have focused primarily on providing infrastructure and have done little to help #displacedpeople and #communities rebuild #socialstructure , which has led to resettlement failures throughout the world. So what does it take to transform a resettlement into a successful community?

The strength of the human spirit never ceases to amaze me. Fleeing the the Soviet occupation as the final bombs fell in last days of WWII, Baltic citizens of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia lived for many years in Germany in Displaced Person camps. By sheer will and perseverance they set up their own University in Hamburg Germany to teach their children and continue their studies. The Baltic University housed 170 Professors and 1200 students during its short time of existence. #history#powerofthepeople
In the beautiful city of Hamburg starting my second round of documentation of former Displaced Person camps in Germany after WWII. A big thank goes our to Saint Joseph University for supporting this research and to my friends and family that helped me begin this project.
Steam rises from Fuego volcano as the Guatemalan army pulls up a truck it will load with families evacuating La Trinidad due to the risk of lahar flows in heavy rains. This community consists of families originally from near Huehuetenango that sought refuge in Mexico during the civil war, and were repatriated to this area after the war ended in 1998. They built up a profitable coffee co-operative they must now abandon -- the government has designated this place as a high-risk area. #Guatemala#refugees#displacedpeople#onassignment @oxfamamerica #fuegovolcano
#Repost @oxfamiraq "Being a barber has been my hobby since I was a child" Wamith says after he gave a haircut to a customer. In 2013, ISIS entered his town in the governorate of Anbar and Wamith was forced to flee. When he returned home, both his house and his shop were damaged. Thanks to the cash he received from Oxfam, he was able to set up a new barber shop so he could once again provide for his family and repair his home.

The shear desperation of knowing the ocean will soon take everything from you! You are poor, you have already been displaced by decades of conflict and war in your country, you have nowhere else to go! This is your life, fishing is your only livelihood.
At night as the tide comes in and the waves crash against your house all you can do is pray that tonight your family will be safe, tonight it’s not your home the ocean takes!
You lay awake struggling to understand why the ocean is unleashing such fury on your Village!
This is the human face of climate change!
The enormity of the tragedy unfolding across Asia needs an urgent global response!
These peoples stories need to be told!#climatechange#humanrights#displacedpeople#globalwarming#actionnow#globalresonance#myanmar#sealevelrise#tellmystory

They fled to feed their kids. They fled to find a living wage. They fled to find safety, to be able to sleep soundly without war and destruction threatening them at every turn. Like many of our ancestors, they fled to find a better life.
What must it feel like to leave everyone and everything you know and love in exchange for a life unknown? Can you ever recall or reimagine the sights and sounds, the smells and tastes, the intangible feeling of home?
Find out for yourself! Bring a warm smile and an open heart and join @miryslist in welcoming new arrivals TOMORROW evening in downtown Los Angeles!

정말 너무 오랜만에 한국을 방문하게 됐는데요...반갑네요... 제가 엄마손잡고 뉴질랜드에 이민갔지만... 대한민국 영원히 파이팅입니다 ♡ 사랑합니다 ♡ ●
U know u are from NZ when u get excited over seeing greenery in Seoul. 😅 From tomorrow, I officially check in for my research Conference at Seoul, so probably won't be roaming wild&free 😅😂😂 I will be visiting DMZ & Samsung though, so should be interesting.👀📷
Something I am really struggling with atm: My sister&I were 1st Asian children in our primary school in Christchurch NZ. 90% of my childhood memories= nice. But I have also lost count of number of times I've had teenage boys screaming from cars I should go "home", or that F**n Asians should p**s off. ●
Here I am, technically in my "home" country. When I walk around, most people look like me. Tbh, it's a weird feeling. I ♡ free WiFi everywhere here, cheap as transport (one card for subway&bus), 10kg watermelons 😍, being close to my nan ♡ But I also know I need to line up under "foreigner" sign at the airport. I hardly ever/pretty much never buy kimchi when I am in NZ&my make up style = v. different to girls here. I don't dye to lighten my hair and I don't like pale makeups. I prefer natural or tanned. I don't want to be skinny. I like my strong calves. I miss weetbix, thick greek yoghurt, raspberries grown in the backyard, the beach ~20min drive from home. ♡ ●
I don't know how to end this post. But I promise my nxt post will be less confusing. :p Da end. ●
