The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) located in Geneva, Switzerland announced on 10 September 2018 that Samira Harnish, the Founder and Executive Director of Women of the World, is the 2018 Americas Region Nansen Award Finalist. The award ceremony will be held on October 1st in Geneva, Switzerland.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has initiated a project in the form of a website, the Worldwide Community of Resettled Refugees, to serve as an on-line forum for resettled refugees. In conjunction with the University of Geneva, a website has been created where resettled refugees can create an account, invite other refugees, and tell as much about themselves as they would like.
The purpose of this website is to share refugees’ individual resettlement stories, find friends who have been resettled, and provide a global online community for refugees to interact with one another.
For more information about the project, please visit http://www.unhcr.org/5077e5d96.html; interested refugees should email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an invitation to join.
