WHAT IS IT LIKE TO HAVE TO FLEE?
Peace and safety are not guaranteed for everybody. Disasters and conflicts affect the lives of many millions of people around the world. What do you think of this?
At present, an estimated 65.6 million people in the world have fled their homes. One in 113 people in the world is a refugee, displaced person or asylum seeker. At Humanity House, we enhance understanding of humanitarian themes with our Journey of a Refugee, in which you hear, see and experience what it means to be caught up in a disaster or conflict. No matter what your knowledge of these themes, a visit to our museum brings disasters and conflicts, which you normally only see on television or read about in newspapers, closer to home, making the unimaginable imaginable. During an interactive journey through Humanity House, you feel like you’ve stepped into the shoes of a refugee.
PLAN YOUR VISIT
Humanity House offers various learning programmes related to the themes of refugees, war and relief aid. They can be booked individually or in combination. For example, you can complement your journey with a presentation about humanitarian law of war by the Red Cross, or the lecture ‘Humanitarian Concern’ about relief aid and structural collaboration by ICCO and Kerk in Actie. Or choose a personal encounter with Sahar, Ayham or another refugee, who will talk for 30 minutes about their refugee story. Or are you interested in the events we organise?
