Who are the Refugees
According to UNHCR – United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, ‘Refugees are people who are forced to leave their country and move to another country for reasons such as war, violence or any form of torture. Huh.’ But there is also the process of getting refugee status.
To obtain this status, people seeking refuge in other countries have to prove the reasons stated in the definition of refugee. For this, people seeking shelter (Asylum Seekers) apply to the government of that country to get shelter. They do not even get refugee status until their application is accepted.
