I have come to celebrate World Refugee Day. Ideally, this occasion should be a happy one because we have to smile at our fortune and be optimistic about life.

"My message is levelled at all refugees on this day; my friends and family: enjoy, life is beautiful [holding a sign]. We must overcome all hardship and the hard days we went through...," Mohammad added.

CARE also held dialogue sessions whereby refugees would gather to talk about concepts such as the word refugee and shed light on the plight of refuge and war.
