World Refugee Day 2004: Papua New Guinea

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 World Refugee Day programme included placing the High Commissioner's media statement as an opinion piece in the major newspapers and having the World Refugee Day television spot played on the television station.
