Dr. Joseph Boomenyo has written this book to reveal the courage, resilience, potential, and ability of refugees to move from being liabilities to assets. The book is packed with stories worth telling, that no one else can tell them better than the person who lived them. Dr. Joseph has been forced to leave his country of origin and habitual residence due to the civil war and lived in a country of asylum as a refugee for twenty years. This man has experienced and seen with his own eyes the misery, vulnerability and plight of refugees living in various refugee camps in African countries. He decided to sacrificially invest his time, spiritual gifts, talents, knowledge, and abilities to contribute to the empowerment of his fellow refugees and other vulnerable people in communities through capacity-building. He calls for collective action, solidarity, and strong partnership in addressing the plight of refugees around the world.
