WRD 2018 Fact #2

Myth: Refugees are invading Western Europe.

Fact: Over 80% of refugees are in developing countries.

While headlines sometimes make it seem like refugees are invading Europe, the vast majority of refugees remain in developing nations, very often stuck in limbo states, with no legal residency or work status. NaTakallam works predominantly with this category of displaced people. Based on the latest UNHCR report, Lebanon is the country that hosts the highest density of refugees worldwide while Turkey, Jordan, Pakistan and Iran host the highest number of refugees overall, with Uganda and Ethiopia close behind.
