Telling the Real Story

An interactive community-based platform disseminating stories about the extraordinary journeys made by Eritrean and Somali refugees and migrants to Europe.

“Telling the Real Story platform provides a collection of authentic stories, told by the refugees and migrants themselves. They speak to their own communities and share their experiences, good and bad. Through these testimonies, those who choose to embark on the journey are informed of the full scope and perils they may encounter in order to help them make an informed decision and prepare them for their future movements.

Through the platform, UNHCR is supporting brave Eritrean and Somali survivors to tell their stories in their own words and to everyone that is willing to listen.”
