A frightening reality for millions of people.

What if simply bringing a child into the world puts him or her in danger?

From UNHCR:

He graduated high school with the 3rd highest grades in Syria. Finished university at the top of his class. And he received a scholarship to pursue his PhD. He met the love of his life and started a family.

Then the war broke out.

A missile struck the house he designed, killing his wife, a daughter and five other family members. He fled to Turkey empty-handed.

He's now battling cancer alongside all of the trauma he's lived through.

He's just been offered a second-chance to make his mark on the world in Troy, Michigan, a place he knows nothing about. As he says "I just hope that it’s safe and that it’s a place where they respect science. I just want to get back to work. I want to be a person again. I don’t want the world to think I’m over. I’m still here."

Refugees like him have so much to contribute. Please read the full story at Humans of New York.

(7/7) “I still think I have a chance to make a difference in the world. I have several inventions that I’m hoping to patent once I get to America. One of my inventions is being used right now on the Istanbul metro to generate electricity from the movement of the train. I have sketches for a plane that can fly for 48 hours without fuel. I’ve been thinking about a device that can predict earthquakes weeks before they happen. I just want a place to do my research. I learned today that I’m going to Troy, Michigan. I know nothing about it. I just hope that it’s safe and that it’s a place where they respect science. I just want to get back to work. I want to be a person again. I don’t want the world to think I’m over. I’m still here.”

10 infographics that show the insane scale of the global displacement crisis

"Half of the 60 million displaced are children...that’s nearly 30 million children. How many of these children are in primary school? One in two. Only one in four is in secondary school. And university? Well, only 1%."

The media has been actively covering UNHCR’s recently released Annual Global Trends Report which highlighted the insane fact that worldwide displacement is at the highest level ever recorded. António Guterres, the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, said in the report that the world is entering an…
