A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee their home due to the fear of war, persecution or natural disaster, and has crossed an international boarder to find safety in another country.
Refugees must find their way to a Refugee Camp, which is a safe haven that provides basic necessities in emergency situations. Most camps are heavily guarded and operated by the UNHCR, the refugee branch of the United Nations.
The number of people living in refugee camps today is about 24 million. While camps are not meant to be permanent solutions, refugees often spend years even decades in a camp. The average stay is 17 years.
