Alek Wek

As a young girl, Alek Wek was forced to flee her home in the southern region of the Sudan due to ongoing violence and civil war. She was later discovered in London and became an international supermodel who now tirelessly advocates for the rights of refugees as a Goodwill Ambassador for the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

We have a global displacement crisis on our hands, and as a global community we must address it. We must engage. We must empathize. We must figure out what we can do as individuals, as families, as neighbourhoods, as communities, as States, as nations.
