World Refugee Day 2003: Nicaragua

World Refugee Day 2003: Nicaragua

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.

On June 20, a special discussion forum on the theme of Refugee Youth was held with the participation of the following universities: Universidad Centroamericana, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Nicaragua, and Universidad Politécnica de Nicaragua. Refugees from El Salvador and Guatemala shared their experiences at the forum.
