After reading lots of article through the Internet, I think it is a very serious and bulky issue to talk about. The issue of refugees brings the world great impact. The leaders in United Nation and especially USA and in Europe face the challenges. How to help new immigrants settle down in new countries is a big issue. No common language in the beginning leads to misunderstanding or conflicts in the society. Because they could not immerse in a new society for the difficulty to live in a new place,the refugees would feel isolated and despised. As a result,they easily become social problems in new countries, although the local community would like to help them. It seems that the refugees easily form from their “exotic” nation in the new land of the other nation since the number of them is so large. Their culture and language and religion are so distinct from where they are relocated. Imagine, There are over thousands of people living in your community who practice their own customs and religious rituals without speaking the common language for you to understand. How much unrest it could bring forth? Based on humanity, as a global villager, I agree completely the developed countries should extend their ability to help the refugees. However, As a college student, What can we do to help them? What are the people doing not to let the tragic get worse?”World Vision is helping out Jordan, Syria and Lebanon by offering health care, education & clean water. “This is the article I Read from the Internet. So now that we know the world is taking action to this issue,the question remains, “What can we do to make a difference within the issue ?” Well for a start, we can volunteer in organizations like The Red Cross. As well as learning crucial life skills such as first aid, we will also be taught the importance of one of the Red Cross’ maxims, “Understanding the context of international, humanitarian law while promoting the Red Cross movement.” Through volunteering for organizations such as Red Cross, young people of Taiwan can raise money for overseas humanitarian aid while encouraging the provision of ongoing humanitarian relief whenever it is needed, wherever it is needed. What’s more, I would like to share a story I read just recently which inspired her to get involved in this type of work. It started with one man, Yang Yu-Jen (???) After learning that many refugee in Kenya must walk barefoot for nearly four hours to attend school, Yang and his wife, who live in Taoyuan City, decided to launch a campaign called “Used Shoes Save Lives”, to encourage people to send them unwanted footwear. Within days of posting the campaign on Yang’s blog and setting up a Facebook page, they had received nearly 15,000 pairs of shoes and 7 metric tons of clothes—enough to fill a 40-foot shipping container. This gave me the idea that students in schools all around Taiwan could collect shoes and clothes for the needy. I believe we all have an obligation to contribute to humanitarian aid. I hope that what we have said today will encourage and motivate you to find an opportunity to assist our international community, whether it be by joining a charitable organization or starting a campaign at your school. Remember, We can start making a difference today! Make The world proud of us!
