  • Who bombed your house?

  • How are you coping in your life in exile?


  • But there's one question that always seems to me to be most revealing, and that is:

  • What did you take?


  • What was that most important thing that you had to take with you when the bombs were exploding in your town

  • His classroom sometimes shook with the sound of bombs and shelling.

  • Hany hidden in the back because they were facing checkpoints of menacing soldiers.

    Hany躲在後車廂 躲避一道道危險軍人的檢查哨

  • And they would cross the border into Lebanon,

    穿過邊界 進入黎巴嫩

  • where they would find peace.


  • But they would begin a life of grueling hardship and monotony.


  • They had no choice but to build a shack on the side of a muddy field,


  • and this is Hany's brother Ashraf, who plays outside.

    沒有一個城鎮 村莊沒收容什葉派難民

    換個方式想 這比例就像是

  • It would be as if the entire population of Germany, 80 million people,

    德國的總人口 八千萬人

  • would flee to the United States in just 3 years.


  • Half of the entire population of Syria is now uprooted,


  • most of them inside the country. Six and a half million people had fled for their lives.

  • Over and well over 3 million people have crossed the borders

  • Refugees have a lot of time to prepare for their return.


  • You might imagine that being a refugee is just a temporary state

  • the average time a refugee will spend in exile is 17 years.


  • Hany was into his second year in limbo when I went to visit him recently,

  • He said to me,


  • If I am not a student, I am nothing.”

  • in technology, in education and design,

  • 32,000 people will be forcibly displaced from their homes.

  • They flee across borders like this one.

  • and this is a typical day.


  • Or they flee on unseaworthy and overcrowded boats,


  • risking their lives, in this case, just to reach safety in Europe.

    冒著生命危險 只為了能到達安全的歐洲

  • This Syrian young man survived one of these boats that capsized,

    這名什葉青年 在翻船後 幸運存活下來

  • most of the people drowned,


  • and he told us,


  • Syrians are just looking for a quiet place,


  • where nobody hurts you,


  • where nobody humiliates you


  • and where nobody kills you


  • Well I think that should be the minimum.

    我想 這是最低限度的要求吧

  • How about a place of healing, of learning, and even opportunity?

    那醫療 學習 甚至工作機會呢?

  • You know, Americans and Europeans have the impression that,

    你知道 美國人和歐洲人有種印象是

  • proportionally huge numbers of refugees are coming to their country.


  • But the reality is

    但 事實上

  • that 86 percent, vast majority of refugees, are living in the developing world.

    有86%的難民 都是住在發展中國家

  • In countries struggling with their own insecurity,

    這些國家 有他們自己的安全問題

  • Thank you.


  • But there's something more that we can do than just simply helping refugees survive.

    除了幫助難民生存以外 我們還有更多能做的

  • We can help them thrive.


  • We should think of refugee camps and communities as more than just temporary population centers,


  • where people languish waiting for the war to end.


  • Rather, as centers of excellence,


  • where refugees can triumph over their trauma


  • and train for the day that they can go home

    為了返家之日 訓練自己

  • as agents of positive change and social transformation.


  • It makes so much sense,


  • but I'm reminded of the terrible war in Somalia


  • that has been raging on for 22 years.


  • And imagine living in this camp.

    想像著 難民營裡的生活

  • I've visited this camp. It's in Djibouti, neighboring Somalia,

  • And this is when her face turned blank,

    聽到這問題 她表情一片茫然

  • and she said to me,


  • “I have no future. My schooling days are over.”

    我沒有未來 我不能繼續上學了

  • And I thought there must be some misunderstanding, so I turned to my colleague

    我想這其中一定有些誤會 所以我轉向我同事

  • and she confirmed to me there is no funding for secondary education in this camp.

    同事跟我說 這難民營裡沒有資金來提供中等教育了

  • And how I wished at that moment that I could say to her,

    這一刻 我多麼希望能跟那女孩說

  • We will build you a school.”


  • And I also thought, what a waste.

    同時我也想著 多麼可惜呀

  • She should be and she is the future of Somalia.

  • A boy named Jacob Atem had a different chance,

  • as his village, he was only seven years old,burned to the ground,

    他的村莊 被徹底燒光 當時他才七歲

  • and he learned that his mother and his father and his entire family were killed that day.

    他知道 他爸媽 還有全家 都死於那天

  • Only his cousin survived and the two of them walked for 7 months,

    只有他表弟還活著 他們兩人一起走了七個月

  • this is boys like him,


  • chased and pursued by wild animals and armed gangs,


  • and they finally made it to refugee camps where they found safety,

    最後 他們終於到達難民營 找到安全

  • and he would spend the next 7 years in Kenya in a refugee camp.

    接下來七年 他應該待在肯亞的難民營中

  • But his life changed when he got the chance to be resettled to the United States,

    但他得到機會 被安置在美國 人生因此改變了

  • and he found love in a foster family


  • and he was able to go to school.


  • And he wanted me to share with you this proud moment


  • when he graduated from university.


  • I spoke to him on Skype the other day


  • and he was in his new university in Florida,


  • pursuing his PhD in public health.


  • And he proudly told me how he was able to raise enough funds from the American public

    他很驕傲地跟我說 他能向美國大眾募集到足夠資金

    噢 當時我有好多夢想都快要實現

  • So here's my point:


  • Not investing in refugees is a huge missed opportunity.

    不投資難民的話 會失去很多很多機會

  • Leave them abandoned and they risk exploitation and abuse,

    任由他們被遺棄 受到剝削與暴力威脅

  • and leave them unskilled and uneducated,

    坐視他們無法接受教育 無一技之長

  • and delay by years the return to peace and prosperity in their countries.

  • I believe how we treat the uprooted will shape the future of our world.

  • Hany is at a tipping point.


  • We would love to help him go to university and to become an engineer,

  • tents and blankets and mattresses and kitchen sets,

    像是帳篷 毛毯 床墊 廚具

  • food rations and a bit of medicine.

  • University is a luxury.


  • But leave him to languish in this muddy field


  • and he will become a member of a lost generation.


  • Hany's story is a tragedy,

    Hany的故事 是個悲劇

  • but it doesn't have to end that way.
