This year’s theme for World Refugee Day is Together. We Heal, Learn and Shine. It is a unique theme, as it celebrates the courage and resilience of refugees who mostly flee their homes due to war, persecution, and violence. It is easy for us to focus on the grim side of things when we think of refugees. The truth, however, is that despite being forced to flee from their home countries, and the challenges occasioned by the current COVID 19 pandemic, the refugee population in Uganda continues to work towards a stronger, safer, and more vibrant world through different aspects such music, dance, storytelling, art, technology, food, and sports among others.
