“Refugees show incredible courage and perseverance in overcoming enormous odds to rebuild their lives. Ensuring that they get the protection they deserve is a noble cause because refugee rights are human rights - and rights that belong to us all”. - Antonio Guterres, UNHCR High Commissioner
"I am ZT. I came from Burma three months ago. I see almost everyday raids taking place around Kota Raya. I made me feel shocked since I saw the first time. I am not happy at all. You can imagine how a life of a fearing child could be happy.....
When I see Relas and Immigration people are chasing, beating and arresting our people from hidden place, I hate them. They looked live the evils/devils as in the ghost movies. They looked so cruel and inhuman. I wish they disappear in the country. They are dangerious to our efegee people. It will be so good if they are not seen anywhere.
When I see the agents, I feel that they are money hungry monsters. They dont have any pity on us. They are threatening us all the time, on the way of trafficking. The word is still haunting me: "You will be killed if we dont get money from your parents for bringing you to Malaysia."
I wish all the smugglers, gangsters and the pickpockets abolished in Malaysia - because they are harmful to us after Rela.
My mother asked me to pray for Malaysia Government to amend/redress their policies to be well comprehensive one, so that all human being will enjoy their full human rights.
I wish our government of Myanmar also change their stony hearts, grow their pity and not be cruel to our people and have some reforms in our country.
I special pray for the UNHCR and NGOs who help us, to get more blessings for helping the refugees with all their good and kind hearts. I believe there is special place for them in the kingdom.
Finally I pray for the real peace for the whole world, so that no fights, wars, and all the people of the world will be happy always without fears and tears."
