Refugees United Response

This website that allows refugees to connect with there families is the one thing that can help connect people that have nothing to the one thing they care about. At a point in A Long Way Gone Ishmael plans on going to a village he knows is under attack from rebels for the slight chance he may find his parents. He was willing to give up his life to see his family one last time.
One of the refugees in the film said " Even if I die it is ok. I know my family is fine." This website gave this too her, peace of mind with knowing her family was safe.
There are so many people that feel hopeless and this website is exactly what they need. The future for this website is going to be a miracle for so many people that could really use one.


  1. yeah the website is a great thing. It does give them hope and hope is something that they didnt have before

  2. Peace of mind is a great thing to have. I think it adds to the hope of the refugees to feel at peace that their family and friends are still alive and safe. Not knowing and worrying is so stressful and depressing.
