Your DGB for today is to download and play the My Life As a Refugee App Game.

According to the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), every 8 minutes a person becomes a refugee. Fleeing violence means leaving your belongings, family, culture and country. Refugees are often lumped into discussions about immigration, but their experiences are very distinct from those that pursue new homes for economic or less dramatic reasons. To illustrate this, the UNHCR created a game app that “lets players contemplate the same life-changing decisions refugees make in a true-to-life quest to try to survive, reach safety, reunite with loved ones and restart their lives.”
