Today is World Gorilla day ! The Cross River Gorilla is the rarest gorilla and the most critically endangered of the species. The few gorillas in the rainforest near the Lebialem Highlands now have the increased danger of intensive poaching for bushmeat. The desperate, frightened village communities have fled to hide in the forest because their villages have been burned down as a result of the conflict between the Anglophone East Cameroon and the Francophone West. The Cross River Gorilla Project, totally manned by unpaid staff, is in the process of introducing initiatives to support these poor refugee communities which have resulted from the violence and killings. #gorilla#endangeredspecies#support#help#save#gorillas
Panama ferma la nave Aquarius su pressione del governo italiano e Di Maio dice che è un bene che non ci siano più ONG nel Mediterraneo.
Avere navi umanitarie in mare è una garanzia di indipendenza sulle notizie e su quello che avviene nel Mediterraneo centrale. Spesso, a bordo di queste navi, ci sono reporter indipendenti, che raccontano senza filtri quello che succede in mare. Senza questo presidio avanzato di democrazia, i governi possono raccontare quello che vogliono, fino a mistificare, chiamando queste organizzazioni "taxi del mare" e accusandole senza fondamento di avere rapporti con gli scafisti.
Io sono stato venti giorni in mare a bordo della nave Open Arms, potendo ascoltare tutte le comunicazioni e vedere quello che accadeva direttamente dal ponte di comando. Di rapporti con gli scafisti ed operazioni sospette, non ne ho visto nemmeno l'ombra. "The Line"

GOOOOOD MORNING FOOTSCRAY!!!
Sometimes I pause and absorb the energy which can only be experienced in unique and wonderful places like #Footscray and wonder what society would’ve missed out on if our community had not #welcomed the earlier #migrant settlers... imagine that. Wouldn’t it have been a loss for us all?
Have you allowed your eyes and tastebuds to feast on the many delights in this neck of the woods? Dare to venture? 🤗
Do we care for our neighbours? ⠀
68.5 million people have been displaced since the beginning of the refugee crisis. Many of them wind up in overcrowded camps in southern Europe, dependent on humanitarian and charity aid. ⠀
Last year, God called Rani and Tyler from the US to serve in Lesbos: read about their experiences here https://buff.ly/2NWGvcD⠀
In response to the Syrian Refugee Crisis, the government introduced the VPRS (Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme) in 2014. The scheme generated a great response and was later expanded to include a highly demanded Refugee Sponsorship Programme which was set up and officially launched in 2016.
The aim of this scheme is to help and support refugees resettle here in the U.K. Since the launch many organisations have worked to welcome and help settle many families and they continue to do so.
If you would like the opportunity to see how you can get involved and help towards resettling refugee families, then visit the @meenacentre on the 27th September 2018 at 6.30 - 7.45pm.
Thank you @meenacentre for providing this opportunity.
Is so rewarding to witness how children excel when they are taught how to think instead of being taught what to think. Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is a serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood. Every child has a different learning style and pace. And each child is unique, not only capable of learning but also capable of succeeding. 👭 What we learn remains a part of who we are and what we teach becomes a part of how we want the world around us to evolve and move forward. #foreverychild#children#education#refugees#middleeast
Concerning Germany — From author Norbert Winkeljohann, World Economic Forum (18 Jan 2017): “I’ve seen a growing number of businesses actively seizing the opportunity to work alongside government in taking on the challenges of asylum seeker applications and humanitarian needs. They’re helping build services that help refugees get back on their feet in a new country, while spreading the costs in terms of infrastructure, technology, healthcare, training, education and more…” “Around 100 companies have joined Wir Zusammen, or We Together, a group that helps integrate new arrivals into German society. To date the initiative has secured internships for some 1,800 refugees, and apprenticeships for another 300...” “This is a critical period for them, as many of them are not allowed to work during their first three months in the country... By signing up for a language and vocational training course, refugees gain valuable preparation for a job and a first certified assessment of their occupational aptitude within the German labour market... this initiative will help Germany’s economy by expanding the available flow of new talent, especially in industries such as manufacturing, healthcare and nursing.” #refugees#integration @tsosrefugees
Also, happy birthday to my dearest mother, who has inspired me, nurtured me, comforted me, taught me and shared these significant moments with me. I love you. Je t’aime. انا احبك. Ich liebe dich. Wo ai ni.
Portable School For Rohingya Children | There will be two #greenhouse infrastructure set-ups within the school compound. This greenhouse initiative is to teach and nurture the children's skills to self-grow basic foods such as vegetables. This will also provide them with basic food supplies for their own #sustainability .
Our team interviewed Mr Rajkumar Chibber, born in Dalwal city in Jhelum district, present -day Pakistan. He was only 7 years old when Partition happened and recalls being loaded into a truck along with his family to be transported from their town to Lahore and then a month later to Amritsar.
While the family migrated, his father was reluctant to leave his Muslim friends in Pakistan and stayed with them. His friends offered him protection, but due to a constant threat to his life caused by the ongoing riots, they advised him to migrate. He was provided protection and assistance by his friends to cross the border into Amritsar. Mr Chibber recalls the letters that would come from Pakistan and would make his father both, happy and nostalgic.
Woman from Daara who lived in the camp. Had visited her a few times over the years. Her family was expelled last year and sent back to Syria. Most probably Daara just before the Russian onslaught. Hope to meet her and her family again one day. #zaatari#refugees#documentary
