Forced To Flee is an activity developed to simulate what many people experience when conflict forces them to leave their homes. The scenarios are adapted from real-life situations where the Foodgrains Bank works. Imagine that you are “forced to flee” for political or religious reasons. By participating in small groups, you will be asked to make decisions about your future. The activity will last about an hour. Refreshments will be served right after the church service.
