Fiftyrefugees Malaysia

Hari ni nak share satu website iaitu
Himpunan cerita tentang mangsa pelarian (Refugees) dari pelbagai negara. Ditulis oleh Aris, 37 tahun, Malaysian. 

Information about the site.
As at June 2007, there are approximately 37,000 Refugees registered with the UNHCR (United Nations High Commission for Refugees) in Malaysia. Many more are asylum seekers who have yet to achieve Refugee status. 

This website tells the stories of 50 of them. Aged from babies barely a month old to grandfathers and grandmothers in their 50s, theirs is a varied background, coming from 3 different countries and 10 different ethnicities. 

Theirs is a heartwrenching story of detention, abuse, fear, neglect, and humiliation. But these are stories of resilience, courage, hope and love as well. Read their stories here. People who are of your age, or of your children's age, or your parents'. Normal human beings, of flesh and blood, hopes and dreams, like you and me.

Singgah jangan tak singgah.
