Helping women with chronic illnesses

Endometriosis Blog: Refugees United (Bloggers Unite, Blogging For Hope)… ‘Bloggers Unite To Reunite Refugees’ Event

While those of us who are chronically ill (with endometriosis and other chronic illnesses) face daily challenges, most of us are at least fortunate enough to have an idea of where our family and friends are if we wish to communicate with them and spend time with them. Most likely, few people reading this have been separated from their family members.

Unfortunately, too many people in the world are not as fortunate.

Today I’m blogging for Bloggers Unite: Blogging For Hope regarding the topic of helping refugees around the world.

Bloggers Unite

There are many resources listed on the site above for information about organizations helping refugees:

UK Refugee Services

Lutheran Refugee Services

Aotearoa-New Zealand Refugee Services

United States Committee for Refugees and Immigrant Children

Church World Service Immigrant & Refugee Program

Women’s Commission for Refugee Women & Children

For more information about today’s worldwide blogging event, please see this site – Bloggers Unite: Blogging For Hope.

I’ve included a passage from the Bloggers Unite site:

Why Should You Participate?

The bloggers of Bloggers Unite have created what is the only global blog initiative designed to harness expression in support of human rights and issues in need of highlight. Refugees United is the only online, highly secure and anonymous possibility of refugees to reconnect with family.

The powerful and dynamic gathering of bloggers, from ordinary people to NGO’s and aid agency representatives, is an unprecedented approach and effort to bring focus on the millions of refugees suffering uncertainty and atrocities every day. The blogosphere is a powerful way to raise awareness and aid. Knowledge can bring change.

As a blogger, you are in key position to harness and rally energy behind this cause, by sharing information about the plight of refugees. The ongoing problem of people torn from their homes is something that should, and must, concern us all, in order to find a common solution and bring back life and dignity to the millions suffering. So, please join us, and thousands of other bloggers, by participating in this important cause.

I hope you’ll join me in learning about this worldwide problem. Please see sites listed above for more information.
