Hi, I have received your e-mail through our Yahoo!Group WWB2005.
I see your point that UNHCR's donate buttons can humiliate and even paint a
wrong picture about our refugee brothera and sisters. I just would like to
suggest presenting an alternative to these buttons to further strengthen your
advocacy - showing them that there is a better way of presenting the challenges
faced by refugees around the world.
Many people still are not aware of the real state of the lives of refugees, and
I commend you for working to enlighten us about this. I now know that refugees
are not necessarily poeple
who have lost their material possessions but people who have lost a homeland.
