Three Refugee Nurses from Awbarre Camp were awarded job offers to work as Personal Care Attendants (Nurses) in Canada through TalentLift partnership. All three refugees were supported and provided capacity training through UNHCR’s “Telling the Real Story” (TRS) Project in Jijiga in partnership with PROSPECTS: Youth Empowerment Funding by the Netherlands.
Telling the Real Story is a UNHCR project which aims to promote an intra-community dialogue about the risks of trafficking and smuggling for people on the move.
We are grateful to our refugee volunteers who play a critical role in helping refugees and delivering essential, even life-saving information, to refugees in their communities.
