There are currently 70.8 million displaced people, a number larger than the entire population of Thailand. 1 in every 110 people globally is either an asylum-seeker, internally displaced, or a refugee. In 2018, 25 new people were forced to flee every minute. This talk aims to broaden our perspective of refugee camps and refugee experiences.

This conversation between Côme Nzibarega, who spent 6 years as a refugee, and Augustine Wiah, who spent 13 years as a refugee, provides a glimpse of day-to-day life in refugee camps and champions an appreciation of the indomitable spirit of displaced people seeking freedom.
