Zhanara is a blogger from Kazakhstan.

Rashodi is a student from Tajikistan.

Iraisat is a professor from the Republic of Dagestan.

Joel is a political activist from Cameroon.

Despite their different backgrounds, these four individuals are united by the fact that they were forced to flee their homelands as refugees.

Now in Ukraine, HIAS' partner agency, Right to Protection, released a new documentary video retelling the stories of why they left and the protection they’ve found.

Additionally, the agency has been running a 30-second ad on Ukrainian television in recent weeks in order to shine a light on the country's approximately 10,000 refugees and asylum seekers.
