The way children on the street are treated and welcomed is the same way refugees should be welcomed and loved
(Maganda(Uganda) at November 15, 2016 6:44 pm)
It is good to have a sense of love from even the person not related to you so it is to the refugees
(Faizol(Uganda) at November 15, 2016 6:46 pm)
Refugees are bad because most of them come with many intentions in the name of crying out for help so no need to treat them like our family because they sometimes turn against you
(Mariam(Uganda) at November 15, 2016 6:48 pm)
If refugees are not loved and treated well then we end up with many children, men and people on street
(hussein(Uganda) at November 15, 2016 6:52 pm)
Yes they should be welcomed to show them love and they also feel comfortable
(Brian (Uganda) at November 23, 2016 4:00 am)
I also agree with Brian in that showing them love and comfort is good but why should we not give them all what they would want from their respective countries instead of increasing on the country’s stress and population? or you mean we can not provide them with the security and food instead of allowing them in the country? Me i say its better to help them from their home country.
(Steve Bazibu ( ug ) at November 24, 2016 12:14 pm)
But some countries aren’t in the situation where they can provide their people with love, security, jobs and safety. This is one of the reasons many people have to leave their country and become refugees. So, if that country can’t help, shouldn’t we help?
(Anna at November 24, 2016 12:16 pm)
Yes what if their home country is at war steve i think they need to run from that and find some safety

Refugees are espcaing from war, or famine, or because they are afraid of their government. We must help them to find work, education, and kindness and society can be harmonious. Many refugees have a lot of skills, for example they may have been farmers or scientists before leaving their country. If we do not help them, they will be poor and there will be anger and fear in among people.

Not at all times refugees come in to destabilise the political atmosphere prevailing in a given country. They come in as spies who end up assessing the country’s security status. others come in strange diseases which sometimes affect us thus brining more expenses n suffering
(Komakech (Uganda) at November 24, 2016 12:24 pm)
Ya, its true and i agree with you Nicola in that the world has enough resources that can at least support all people to survive but due to some factors such as being greedy, not being satisfied and finally no love for ones country all lead to wars. in such instances, me i would say we have just to intervene as we help them settle out their issues instead of allowing them in the country because in so doing, there are other problems that come with this.
(Steve Bazibu ( ug ) at November 24, 2016 12:26 pm)
Some wars are not easy to sort out though Steve and it can also draw your country into war. Would you prefer people to stay in a war zone and die if you have enough to share with them?

Also, many refugees are well trained doctors, nurses and midwives. Don’t you think they would bring more good than bad?

its true musana that as these people move, they move with problems such as diseases but still agree with you that we can all help in that we can send them with the security to stop war but i would still need to tell you Anna should also know that helping or treating their diseases after they have entered the country means that we shall spend alot which also make the country to run bankrupt.

I don’t think it would change spies coming through, but, even if it did increase the amount of unscrutinised people, I think more good people would come through than bad.

The only reason that you need to restrict immigration is because you have something you dont want to share. To me that is not acceptable.

I think we can let in refugees who qualify to get into our country and taken as family members. The screening of refugees in any camp should be clear enable whoever is meant to live with a refugee(s) feel safe. I my opinion all refugees should be allowed in but on conditions that they are going to behave themselves ensure that they are not life threatening to the people that the live with. I also think they should allowed in as long as in the camp where the are to live there proper arrangements in terms of feeding, sanitation and hygiene, security, and protection of child rights and human rights in general. Thanks!

I agree with Ibrahim and I also think if they are able to work they should be allowed to do so in order to earn a living for their families. I would try and get more resources for the camp rather than refuse entry.

Families can be formed by people apart from genetic similarity. It is one of the ways that separates us from most animals. Accepting refugees as part of our family, as a societal, community or as individuals is part of how we flourish as a whole.

Resources are not static.Things BECOME resources as they gain value in diff. societal,cultural,historical,& political contexts.

Everyone deserves a right as to refugees also have rights like the right to not be punished for illegally entering a country that is signed on to the treaty, the right to housing, the right to work, access to education, access to public assistance, access to courts, the right to get identification and travel documents, so the treatment part is very essential make them have a feeling they are owned and cared for.

I agree with you solomon, anyone needs a sense of identification for any assistance
(Timothy(Uganda) at November 15, 2016 6:57 pm)
The reason as to why they should be allowed to come is thqt they are going through very difficult circumstances, no peace, hunger every and some of them end up dieing , so i think we should allow them because not everyone prefers to be in that situation, imagine its you facing the castrophe, would u allow to stay and endure with the situation.
(JOSEPH (Uganda) at November 24, 2016 11:40 am)
In the face of adversity, we should feel empathy for the victims, we should care and support them to improve their well being. Therefore the refugees should be allowed to come so that we save their lives from danger and death,innocent children and people are killed during war times, to save their lives we should allow them to come on condition that they will be resettled back home after war. The reason why i suggest that they should be resettled after the war is because they increase on the country’s population.
