Can you imagine that today, now, this minute you are forced to flee and leave everything you have behind, your family, your friends, job, social environment and the majority of your belongings. Simply because there is war, no freedom and you are not safe…. Suddenly all the certainty you once knew has become uncertainty. This feeling is a feeling of utter despair and unhappiness. For the many refugees who are in this very unfortunate position, the Rapenburg Race is being organised by a group of engaged students. On June 23 this charity swim race will take place in the Rapenburg Canal in Leiden. It is supported by the University of Leiden, UNHCR and AMADE Nederland. Aim: to raise money, to give hope, to show we care and help young refugees with education. Our apologize for the lingual inconvenience!
