Migration who belongs to whom?
As Zimbabweans from all walks of life unite to revitalize the health sector and aid the government efforts. The renovation of Saint Anne's Hospial is key to the long-term development of health services in Zimbabwe but once the hospital has been completed solidarity Zimbabwe is working with other agencies to build up other centers feed the hungry and bring aid to points of need
Having shared our experience on combating hate incidents and xenophobia at the Global Diaspora Virtual Exchange yesterday, we are initiating our global Combat Prejudice Campaign. The campaign aims to bring together as many supportive organisations as possible to send out a joint statement to the world that we are standing by all diaspora communities who are experiencing hatred at the moment. Not only we are sending out our message to protect each other, but also the love and care diaspora communities have given and received in their own regions.
Do you want to give back but don't know where to start? Is there a cause you feel passionate about but don't feel like you can make a difference? Don't worry. You're not alone. Many of us have faced these same dilemmas and doubts when we first consider engaging as development actors but the important thing is to start and be willing to learn along the way and IOM's Diaspora Quick Start Guide is just the thing to help you overcome that initial uncertainty and start you on your way to making a real impact on peoples lives.
As the year draws to a close, we want to share something special with you. Here at iDiaspora we are always striving to make our community a safe, comfortable, and inspiring space for our users. So we are very happy to introduce some new features that will help you to engage in the community with confidence.
On 8 October 2018, the iDiaspora platform facilitated by IOM, the UN Migration Agency, was launched at the Palais des Nations Geneva, Switzerland. Over 70 representatives from governments, the private sector and civil society participated in the official launch of this global engagement and knowledge exchange hub for transnational communities. An interactive panel discussion on “Reaching out to Diaspora through technology” was part of the launch event.
