World Refugee Day 2002: Ireland

World Refugee Day 2002: Ireland

20 June 2002

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.

In collaboration with the Reception and Integration Agency of the Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform, UNHCR designed a leaflet for World Refugee Day, featuring five resettled women. The leaflet carried a special message from the President.
