THE United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) is organising a refugee carnival at its premises in Jalan Bukit Petaling in Kuala Lumpur.
UNHCR external relations officer Yante Ismail said the inaugural carnival would be held in conjunction with World Refugee Day on June 20.
“We will provide a rare opportunity for refugee families, especially children, to enjoy the outdoors for a day.
“We will allow the children to play outdoors in a safe space,” she said, adding that the carnival would be held from 9.30am to noon.
Yante said contributors were welcome to sponsor items such as food packs and drinks for about 150 people.
“We would also appreciate toys and trinkets to give away to the children as prizes in the games,” she said.
Yante said it would be great if someone could lend an inflat- able castle or inflatable slides for the children to play with for five hours.
