This is a video on a campaign to give a voice to refugees living in Malaysia. We urge the Malaysian government (and governments every where) to #RECOGNIZETHEM, recognize their existence in this country and sign the 1951 Convention relation to the Status of Refugees.
Without this ratification, Malaysia is able to deport, detain and arrest those who seek refuge in this land.
There are an estimated 100,000+ refugees living in Malaysia. They cannot attend public school. They cannot get legal employment. They have to LIVE IN FEAR.
Refugees who live in Malaysia are being treated as illegal immigrants. THIS HAS TO STOP! They came here for a new beginning, so let us give them one.
Malaysians, it’s time for us to #RECOGNIZETHEM.
Let’s make this video viral! Share the video, tweet about the movement and like the Facebook page.
Everyone Has Hope is a project created by the Canadian Pre-University (CPU) students and teachers of Taylor's College, Subang Jaya, Malaysia.
Inspired by a documentary called 'Born Into The Brothel', this is a photography project involving CPU students as well as professional photographers volunteering to teach photography skills to Burmese refugee youths living in transit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Photos taken by these youths would then be sold through various exhibitions organized by Everyone Has Hope members and money raised will be donated to the Alliance of Chin Refugee (ACR) school.
