World Refugee Day 2004: Austria

World Refugee Day 2004: Austria

20 June 2004

Refugee children wash their families' clothes in Djabal camp. Many children are overwhelmed with daily chores and as a result attend school only sporadically.

A billboard campaign to dispel myths about asylum seekers was organised with the assistance of UNHCR's Austrian website. A press conference also took place to launch the campaign. Free cards were distributed. Media Interviews were given.

The World Refugee Day spot, "The letter", was broadcast on television.
