New video from UNHCR on statelessness
TAGS

UNHCR recently released the report 'I am Here, I Belong: the Urgent Need to End Childhood Statelessness'. We invite you to watch the story of Jirair – one of the stateless youth featured in the report who spoke alongside the High Commissioner about the impact that statelessness has had on his life. Jirair wants to be a professional athlete in Georgia. But when his team travel to compete, he stays behind to train by himself. Why? Because he is stateless.
