Check tsosrefugees's Instagram "My son in law sold his house to provide money for our journey.  He told me, “You are my mother and you should leave the country to live in a better place.” I couldn't bring two of my daughters because I hadn't enough money.  We only had enough money to cover our journey from Afghanistan to Turkey and from Turkey to Greece.  My brother who now lives in Germany also supported us. 
We had many problems on our way from Afghanistan to here.  We were arrested by the Iranian authorities three times. The first time they kept us in a camp for about 2 nights and then they sent us back to Afghanistan. Again we started our journey and again they caught us. And again in Turkey the Turkish police caught us, but we cried a lot and asked them to kill us or sink us in the sea but don't send us back.  So they released us.  We were in Turkey 3 weeks before we found smugglers.  They took us and put us in a boat and in the middle of our way, our boat had a problem and was filled with water. We were very lucky that the police boat found us and took us. 
I had terrible times in our way with little children.  I couldn't feed them for 2 or 3 days. Some nights I was afraid we would be attacked by wolves, or thieves in the jungle, and I didn't sleep at all those nights. 
When my brother was in Afghanistan, he supported me a lot. But he is in the Germany, now. He used to serve in the military in Afghanistan when he was there and he had a lot of problems such as a suicide car bombing near him where he lost many soldiers.  After this he left the country. I thought we should leave, as well. We came to Europe seeking a good life, but now we have a bad situation. "

Check jennifercecile's Instagram The Sympathizer was so good I knew this collection of short stories would be great. They are wonderful, they are timely given the Syrian refugee crisis, and they are a glimpse into the strange split lives that many refugees inhabit. The stress of being a refugee, the desire to fit into new surroundings, and equally not wanting or being able to forget the circumstances that forced them to leave home. A must read! #therefugees #vietthanhnguyen #grovepress #vietnam  #refugeestories #instabook #igreads #winterreading 1457517018034458070_214223370

Check humansoutofnk's Instagram “I began repairing machines since I was 7-years-old. I was an introvert so I preferred disassembling machines to hanging out with friends. Because my father was an engineer, there were always lots of leftover parts around the house for me to play with. I started to fix small things like watches then moved onto electronics. When I resettled in South Korea, however, friends discouraged me from continuing my job. Some told me, ‘Are you really going to spend the rest of your life as a mechanic? Study something new when you have the chance.’ But I loved and took pride in my work. When the world doubted or judged me, I remembered what Steve Jobs said: ‘The only way to do great work is to love what you do.’ I believed in my work. In the end, that was all that mattered. Eventually, I began an iPhone repair company. We have successfully fixed approximately 1,200 devices and have not received any customer complaints.”

“제가 수리를 시작한 건 7살 무렵이에요. 성격이 소심한 편이라 친구들과 노는 것보다도 기계들을 분해하고 조립하는게 너무 재밌었어요. 아버지가 30년 넘게 엔지니어로 일하셔서 집에 기계부속품이 많았는데 그걸 장난감 삼아 놀고는 했죠. 그게 시계 수리부터 다른 전자 제품 수리까지 이어져, 북한에서만 10년 동안 수리를 했어요. 한국에 와서는 제게 그만두라고 한 사람도 많아요. 제일 심한 말은 ‘평생 수리공으로 살 생각이냐? 다 때려치우고 공부나 해라’ 같은 말이었죠. 그래도 저는 이 일이 좋았어요. 힘들 때면 스티브 잡스를 생각했어요. “위대한 일을 하는 유일한 방법은 자신의 일을 사랑하는 것입니다.” 같은 말들을요. 그게 믿음이고 힘이었어요. 결국 이렇게 아이폰 수리 회사도 세우고 여태 1200개 정도의 아이폰을 컴플레인 없이 수리해냈죠. 자기가 좋아하는 일을 하면서 돈을 벌 수 있다는 것이 북한과 너무나도 달라요. 저는 덕분에 지금 너무나 행복해요.” 1457094537645397147_4606597709

When I opened up about my life in North Korea, I could feel an invisible wall that separated me from others. No one explicitly said ‘I don’t like you’ to my face, but I could still sense their uneasiness. I desperately tried to fit in. I tried to be less North Korean. I tried to abide by the practices of South Korean society so that I would be accepted. A lot of people offered help and gave me advice, which I greatly appreciated. But I never felt fulfilled. Because I didn’t believe in myself, I was pulled in all directions. I had no idea who I was. I was always trying to be someone else.

“(Wife) We bought 100 beehive boxes with our security deposit but half of them were empty. What to do but start with 50? We spent the nights in greenhouses and began to raise bees. But even when we had produced the honey, there was no one to sell it to. We hadn’t calculated the demand. We didn’t know anyone around the village or know how to set up our business. The first year, we ended up giving away our honey to our neighbors for free. The next year, we sold our honey out on the street. At first, customers were suspicious of us and our product because of our northern accent. So we would greet them with a smile and tell them, ‘We are from North Korea. We speak with a funny accent, but our honey is sweet. Please try some.’ Once customers tasted our honey, they had to come back for more—our honey is simply the best in the world."

Check oxfamaustralia's Instagram Oxfam's work with refugees in Tanzania is about much more than just providing clean water and food. It is about building hope for the future, by providing the tools for people to lift themselves out of poverty, and thrive. ⠀
⠀
We have a strong presence at the Nyarugusu and Ndutu refugee camps. Apart from providing water and sanitation, Oxfam helps refugees improve their quality of life with practical skills training.⠀
⠀
By providing tailoring lessons, some refugees in the camp have been able to join or establish small tailoring businesses. Not only can they alter and create garments but also get to utilise their teaching expertise in training other adults in the tailoring trade.⠀

Oxfam's work with refugees in Tanzania is about much more than just providing clean water and food. It is about building hope for the future, by providing the tools for people to lift themselves out of poverty, and thrive. ⠀ ⠀ We have a strong presence at the Nyarugusu and Ndutu refugee camps. Apart from providing water and sanitation, Oxfam helps refugees improve their quality of life with practical skills training.⠀ ⠀ By providing tailoring lessons, some refugees in the camp have been able to join or establish small tailoring businesses. Not only can they alter and create garments but also get to utilise their teaching expertise in training other adults in the tailoring trade.⠀ ⠀ Photo: Amy Christian/OxfamAus #endpoverty #oxfam #refugeestories #clothes #empower #entrepreneur #women
