I dag, på verdens flyktningdag, er det viktig å minne oss selv på at en flyktning er en overlever og en ressurs.

Filippo Grandi, FNs høykommisær for flyktninger, løfter frem flyktningers resiliens, utholdenhet og vilje til å skape og bidra.

 
«Through UNHCR’s work – often on the front lines of conflict -we witness the courage, tenacity and brilliance of refugees every single day.

Having lost their homes, their work, and sometimes their families – they don’t give up – they find a way to start again. Striving to belong, and to contribute, they reach out to their new neighbours, building connections, and creating new opportunities. Given the right environment, our experience is that refugees bring solutions, not problems.»
