2015 witnessed the number of people who have had to flee for their lives reach a staggering 60 million across the globe. As the conflicts and violence keep pushing people flee for safety, the needs of refugees and other displaced people who lost everything have been steadily growing too. The pressure on some of the hosting countries has increased enormously as the refugees are stuck in exile, for longer and in greater numbers, impacting on resources and goodwill alike.
