The event brought together more than 70 people, including refugees, asylum-seekers, journalists and NGO staff, who met to remember and pay tribute to the 59.5 million people around the world forced to flee their homes due to war or human rights abuses.
Karlis Celms, a famous Latvian-American chef, cooked together with many enthusiastic refugees and asylum-seekers, who praised the opportunity to unite around activities that connect all of us.
Karolina Lindholm Billing, Deputy Regional Representative UNHCR RRNE, warmly addressed the refugees and asylum-seekers and thanked them for their participation and enthusiasm: “This is another good example of your wish to take every opportunity to integrate into and make a positive contribution to the communities and countries that have provided you with safety.
Sandra Zalcmane, Head of Drošā māja, highlighted the importance of the event as it also marked the finalization of a refugee integration project implemented by this organization. Ms Zalcmane shared her happiness “for seeing each case of a refugee succeeding even just a little bit, it be by learning more Latvian or by finding a job”.
World Refugee Day is held every year on 20 June. The UNHCR Regional Representation for Northern Europe is celebrating World Refugee Day 2015 with events in Latvia, Lithuania and Denmark.
