Today is World Refugee Day and I am thinking of home.
My agency runs a workshop called 'Without a Home in the World' about the millions of people who face displacement. We will soon publish a book with the UNHCR of the same title (in Chinese), and will continue to fight for people's basic rights. We want to take away the last 'e' from 'refugee' and make a refuge.
Home. Where we can be ourselves. Where one wave safely follows another.
Maybe where we sing.

some ideas from Ian and from Oxfam Hong Kong.
