Makers Unite and The Refugee Nation have teamed up to create new job opportunities for refugees and unite people around the world with a powerful symbol of support.
Makers Unite is hiring refugees to create flags out of life vests worn by refugees themselves who have traveled to Greece. This initiative generates jobs for those who have arrived in Europe and provide them with the necessary means to start a new life. Through this process, all of the hardships experienced while wearing the life vests are stripped away and what remains is a symbol of hope and solidarity with refugees around the world.
With the Refugee Nation Flag we honour the thousands of displaced people around the world who have bravely escaped war, persecution or natural disasters, by continuing our work to help them attain the rights they deserve.
