Refugee parents talk about their children and how much they love them

 

"You do whatever it takes to help your kids to survive..."

The attempt to escape war and persecution can tear families apart. In this video, fathers and mothers from Kosovo, Colombia, Iraq, Sudan and Iran talk about their kids and how much they would do for them. For many who have lost their homes, family ties are even more important than before. UNHCR helps families through the education of children in camps and in urban environments, through sporting and health programs and by assisting with family reunification, often with the help of implementing partners.
