INTRODUCTION
Wars, conflicts, natural disasters, and oppressive regimes are causing unnamable wounds in the lives of many civilians. They are exiled from their homes and have to take shelter in safer countries. The civilians who are forced to migrate face uncountable hardships during their long journeys. And the ones managing to reach safer regions face new challenges due to various issues in the receiving countries.


Whereas, all of the challenges faced by these civilians whom we name as “refugees” may one day become the problems of everyone, it is essential to resolve these issues immediately. In order to bring to the forefront of the global agenda, the issues of civilians, who are forced to continue their lives as “refugees,” and to raise awareness about this sensitive problem and to contribute to the solution, Kimse Yok Mu has organized a caricature competition titled 
“Refugees.”
We hereby invite all artists, who want to draw attention to the refugee problem with their 
drawings, to our caricature competition.
