World Refugee Day 2003: Honduras

World Refugee Day 2003: Honduras

20 June 2003

Kids play in a neighbourhood populated mostly by Iraqi refugees. Because refugees are not allowed to work in Syria, children often must take informal jobs to help support their families.

The National Lottery of Honduras issued a lottery bill specially designed for World Refugee Day during the week of June 16-22.

On June 19, staff from UNHCR and its partner organisation, CIPRODEH, participated in a radio show. A special television show titled, "The world's refugees: The need for a new asylum legislation", was broadcast on Channel 13. On June 22, UNHCR participated in the TV news show, "Abriendo brecha", on Channel 7.
