Our last day at the Refugee School was a sad one. In a very short time, the people we’ve met there are our friends and we feel for them and the terrible situation they are in. They can’t work, the kids can’t go to school, they are stuck for years in ‘no-mans land’ – they can’t go back for fear of being killed and they can’t move forward because the UNHCR refugee settlement situation takes forever. The latest estimate for resettlement is after they receive refugee 8-10 years, and that’s AFTER they achieve refugee status, which takes 18-24 months. So for the years they are here, they do the best they can – and the best thing is to be involved in the several refugee schools that in the area.
