The Unspoken Humanitarians: Host Communities & the Global Forced Displacement Challenge

Worldwide, over 65.3 million people have been forcibly displaced from their homes. This represents the largest displaced population since World War II. Where these people settle and the way in which they are received largely determines the ease with which they can rebuild their lives.

Join refugees, aid and front line workers, host communities, decision-makers and fellow Canadians for an evening of film and discussion to mark World Refugee Day 2017.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

FREE registration via Eventbrite

Keynote speakers and discussion panel with Q & A, speakers and panelists to be announced shortly.

Film screening: Kakuma, The Invisible City

Kakuma refugee camp, built in the middle of the Turkana desert (Kenya), is the fastest growing city in the region. Many of its new arrivals are children sent out of conflict zones by their parents. Against all odds, these children grab all opportunities in the camp to rebuild their life.

Can Kakuma really offer a future? Or is it just a waiting room, where the only option is to plan your journey to Europe?

In a world hit by inhumane political decision making, this film wants to draw attention to the ongoing crisis in the Horn of Africa. With this intimate approach, The Invisible City [Kakuma] wants to be an antidote to the growing xenophobia.
