Refugee camps

Refugee Art Project

The Toronto Global Shapers is organizing the Refugee Art Project, a multimedia showcase that will feature art and live performances.

All while providing them with a platform to raise awareness on the conditions they live in.

Dinner Around Displaced People

Women in refugee camps are extremely vulnerable to violence as they are left out of basic decision making.

To highlight this issue, the Oxfam Canada is organizing “What She Knows Matters: Conversation On Women Refugees”.

The aim is to engage participants in an informal dialogue on the circumstances facing women refugees.

Live music and food are also on the agenda.
