Geneva, 19 May 2020 - When refugees can neither safely return home nor stay in the country to which they have fled, resettlement to a third country is their only hope to live in peace. “Resettlement offers a durable solution for those who cannot fend for themselves,” writes ICMC resettlement expert Erik Morrison. He recalls the story of a mother from Honduras who fled to Mexico with her children to escape violence only to be tracked down by the criminal gangs from whom she was fleeing. “This is where ICMC, in partnership with UNHCR, provides a lifeline. We focus our efforts on refugees who require resettlement because of their background and vulnerability.” As reports that criminal gangs across Latin America are using the new coronavirus pandemic to consolidate power, resettlement may be more important than ever.
