Refugee Social Services will be hosting Forced to Flee - a mini-film festival and a series of activities happening in venues in and around Durban to commemorate World Refugee Day on June 20.

The focus this year is on creating awareness around the stories of forced migration and refugees. The commemoration will marry film; photography; visual art; music; craft and discussions.

The core event took place at the Denis Hurley Hall, Diakonia Centre on World Refugee Day, June 20. From June 23 to 27, supporting events are taking place at the Alliance Fran├žaise; Durban Holocaust Centre; Project Gateway in PMB and the Rainbow Restaurant in Pinetown; the Refugee Social Services; Lawyers for Human Rights; Archie’s Cafe at the Diakonia Centre and Refugee Pastoral Care.
