Geography - Global phenomena: refugees continued
View this video to learn why refugees are forced to flee their homelands
Refugees  are people who are forced to flee their homeland. A
catastrophic natural event or major political upheaval within their
homeland often causes their movement. It is always difficult for
neighbouring countries to offer the help required by huge numbers of
refugees as the speed of their departure leaves them ill prepared for life
in a new land. Not only do the host nations have little time to prepare for
the arrival of refugees, the refugees themselves, often have little time to
prepare for their departure.
