    1. The thing that really surprised me is that 144$ million to help Ukrainian refugees along with Epic games developer and Microsoft which is a really great donation, since Fortnite is one of the most famous international games, so I has a high productivity, which also encourage other businesses to do so. Then, by that the help of wealthy people donations will be accomplished.
    3. Yes for sure, the facts we just learnt are the most useful and effective to use. For example, a topical talker rational_grape used the fact of the UNHCR of how it promotes and protects refugees rights.

    It is the horrific stories of refugees and the tragedies they endure while fleeing that stir emotions in the world, not the statistics that show their number. The world saw the picture of the Syrian child lying on the beach off the coast of Turkey and he was dead. Enter the following link. You will find similar stories https://www.aljazeera.net

    Appreciating the horror that refugees are exposed to, fear and panic, made me feel that the world is oppressing this group of people because it does not defend their rights and does not find solutions to end their suffering. Injustice exists and it is necessary not to acquiesce, although the result of not accepting someone's policy may lead to a conflict that may develop into a war, as happened in some Arab countries when the opinion of the people contradicted the government, and the biggest example is Syria

    Yes, I have Vajitna this information because the number of families is so massive, or nearly 4,000 families from the Gaza Strip because of a lot of people 23400 who need this money because of the economic conditions who suffer from it because of the occupier and I thank very much the European Union, which contributed to the provision of the amount of the price of 3 million euros as the reason, which supported the residents of the Gaza Strip by supporting them.

    Through research and this was something amazing where I found the amount of donations that reached the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the United Nations during the period between 2012 and 2015, about 2.7 billion $, which was to help Syrian refugees in neighboring countries: Turkey, Iraq, Lebanon and Jordan Egypt, as well as North African countries. These donations came from several countries and organizations, and the largest donors during that period, the United States up to $ 988 million, and Kuwait up to $ 326 million, then the European Union up to $ 276 million. During that period, Qatar has provided about $ 24600000, and Saudi Arabia has provided nearly $ 18.7 million, the United Arab Emirates provided about $ 7 million. These amounts are able to reduce the difficulties experienced by refugees and provide their requirements. There are statistics found in the link https://www.infosalam.com

    What really surprised me was that Fortnite raised so much money for Ukraine. 144 million is a lot of money. I think more video games should do this, especially popular games like Fifa, Minecraft etc. Because a lot of people play them, more people will donate.
