Documentary: Melissa Fleming – A Voice For Refugees

Heartbreaking account of one brave refugee girl's story of hope and loss.

Every day, I listen to harrowing stories of people fleeing for their lives, across dangerous borders and unfriendly seas. But there’s one story that keeps me awake at night, and it’s about Doaa,” Melissa Fleming Voice for refugees.

As head of communications for the UN’s High Commissioner for Refugees, Melissa Fleming sheds light on their devastating plight and remarkable resilience.

Aboard an overloaded ship carrying more than 500 refugees, a young woman becomes an unlikely hero.

This single, powerful story, told by Melissa Fleming of the UN’s refugee agency, gives a human face to the sheer numbers of human beings trying to escape to better lives … as the refugee ships keep coming. (Filmed in May 2015 at TED TV).

The transcript to this documentary can be read here on Alistair Reign.
