Recently on our Refugee Week, we wanted to talk about how people understand who they really are, without labelling them as refugees.
We started a campaign: Look beyond the label
I’m an orientation volunteer in the Red Cross; I have met lots of refugees and asylum seekers who have just arrived in the UK. Many of them had professions as doctors, engineers, teachers, and much more from their respective countries. And they still can continue being that if we only recognised them and looked beyond the label.
