Today we received 5,000 Refugees are Welcome White Ribbon badges . The reason we’ve done this is because according to the UN, “Female refugees across the world are highly vulnerable to all forms of sexual and physical violence. In addition to the dangers women face from contesting armed groups, once on the move from the conflict zone, they are also at risk of being brutalised by human traffickers or even border security forces. Even after exiting the conflict zone, safety can be elusive. Staying in a refugee camp within the country of origin or seeking protection elsewhere brings serious threats to women’s security, freedom and health.” Source - Protecting Female Refugees against Sexual and Gender-based Violence in Camps UNU 2015.
