After a successful 2017 series, the Stories of Survival Speaker Series has expanded in 2018 with five different events. Hear first-hand from speakers about their own stories of survival and journeys are refugees.

Hundreds of thousands of families from the central African nation of Burundi are fleeing violence, extrajudicial killings, abduction, torture, and persecution. Many Burundi refugees are children who arrive at camps unaccompanied and separated from their families. 

About Stories of Survival: Stories of Survival is RefugeeConnect's annual speaker series. Our 2018 series includes five different speaking engagements with refugees from five different countries telling their own stories of survival, including Somalia, Cyprus, the Former Soviet Union, Burundi, and Bhutan.
