Lyrics:
United Nations Presents
Another Silent Night
A song inspired by the true stories of 32 girs who survived conflict, famine and natural disasters
New York city
Good evening. This is a version of a holiday Carol that tells the story…

NYAWAL, 23
South Sudanese Refugee

You can’t see what I’ve been through like just by looking at me. I grew up in the refugee camp and so when I see those images I think about how like like my life could end it.

FATIMAH, 13
FLED IRAQ WHEN SHE WAS 5

Back right used to live in Iraq. I just wonder like why I was all ripped away from me.

EKHLAS, 27
DISPLACED BY CONFLICT IN SUDAN

A refugee it’s not something that I chose to be I had to start my life from the beginning a refugee is someone who has courage and we should cherish that.

♬Silent night. Painful night.
Our mothers tears fall in fright.
Our loved ones captured, bought and sold
Chained and shilvering in the cold
Silently praying for peace
Silently praying for peace♬

Many people who have stayed bad have died it still hits me really hard.
I lost so many siblings they passed away from like basic living conditions. Whithout the UN, I think my family would still be in that refugee camp.
I guess like when people first come here they assume that like we’re gonna bring terrible stuff. It’s kind of a stereotype at this point. Everyone would ever think that I don’t think you’ve ever met one that like came here with the struggles one that came here with like a drive to like make sure their kids are safe to make sure they work hard in this country and that yeah I don’t think they know that.

♬Silent night. Hopeful night.
Save and sound our spirits renewed
Lifting our voices for peace.
Lifting our voices for peace♬

They were saved by a miracle: Humanitarian aid
Help the UN Central Emergency Response Fund be there when and where crises strike
