Melissa Fleming – Let’s help Refugees thrive, not just survive.

Melissa Fleming, Head of Communications and Chief Spokesperson for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and she has given an extraordinary talk on TED about how to help refugee thrive. Rather than letting people languish in the misery and boredom experienced in refugee camps, why not teach them vital skills that will help them one day rebuild their shattered homelands and at the same time keep them focused on nurturing future peace? This is a beautiful talk and seems to suggest a very tangible and sensible solution to one of the largest humanitarian issues of our world. Do listen to it HERE and hopefully enjoy the illustrations I’ve done to go with it.
