There are many reasons for refugees to abandon their homes : prosecution due to race , religion , nationality or political beliefs , or for being a member of a certain social group. War, hunger, and natural disasters can be further grounds to flee.
Already devastated by these events, refugees can face severe difficulties during their escape. Health issues can occur due to injuries or a lack of nutrition , but also due to strong psychological stress.
On arrival at the destination problems don’t necessarily stop. People without a home need our help when they arrive at a shelter – until they are able to stand on their own feet again.
Donate on betterplace.org for relief supply, tents for refugee camps, or for the psychological treatment of refugees!
