flee (動)逃げる、逃れる、非難する

 

In Geneva, Switzerland, More than 2,000 people gathered for the first –ever Global Refugee Forum. The aim was to create new ideas and agreements to help refugees.

War and persecution have forced more than 25milion people to flee across international boarders with no way of returning to their homes.

Persecution is cruel or unfair treatment over a long period of time because of race or political or religious beliefs.

Other factors can include gender, sexual preference, body type and social standing.
