#WhyImHere: Refugees and the Mohawk Valley

A documentary for the #WhyImHere online campaign, which started four weeks ago to help raise money for the Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees.

#WhyImHere is an online campaign that started four weeks ago to help raise money for refugees in Utica and the Mohawk Valley. As part of the project, we set a goal to reach $5,000 to donate to the Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees.

Through writing stories, producing podcasts, creating content on social media and shooting a documentary, we were able to make our local community act and donate to this worthy cause. With just a few days remaining, we hope you can help us reach our goal.

In this documentary, we present the stories of four refugees: Imad Rajb from Iraq; Bikash Regmi from Bhutan; and Hana Selimovic and Selma Jasencic from Bosnia. After watching these six minutes, perhaps you will have a clearer idea about the refugee crises in this world.

We encourage you to watch this documentary and support this campaign, and please consider supporting the MVRCR and the local refugee population in the future.
