Running For Freedom
by Jolly Bakatu

As you may have guessed from reading this book, i have deep feelings and strong opinions about human rights violation by those who helped create human rights in the world. everyone has the right to a life that is free of the fear of violence. For a human being to be denied rights and freedoms is a tragedy.

Africa's abundant natural resources has attracted different parasites that strike the continent with massive human rights abuse through violence and wars leading thousands of people to become refugees.

Every day human rights abuse happens to thousands of refugees in Africa, regardless of their gender, age, race, financial standing, educational background, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, occupation or social status. it occurs among all refugees who are married, divorced, separated,or those who are still dating and those confined in camps.

Human rights abuse touches every refugee in Africa. chances are high that you know a refugee or any person whose rights are being abused.

Refugees in Africa deserves to live the life of their dreams , the life of their design and the life of their choosing, a life free from fear, a life free from intimidation, a life free from name calling, a life of peace.

the book shares the insights causes of refugees displacement and the possible solution brought by United Nation High Commisionner for Refugee (UNHCR) as a world humanitarian agency, it gives an account of camp based refugees life, their struggle and fear of the unknown and uncertainty as well as the hope of a better future through resettlement in a third country for refugees who will not dye prematurely from different calamities which they are facing in the camp as local integration in the host country and repatriation to their country of origin is a nightmare for most of refugees.
