The Chin Up Project

The Chin Up Project is a multimedia platform for ethnic Chin refugees to voice out their dreams for the year 2020. The community are facing possible forced repatriation to Myanmar due to a policy change by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), who announced that they have determined Myanmar to be safe for ethnic Chin refugees to return to. Therefore, refugee protection for the ethnic Chin will now be reviewed, and the refugee programme for the community will collectively come to an end on 31 Dec 2019. How do the Chin community feel about this? We find out more from Colin Laltanpuia an ethnic Chin refugee in Malaysia and a filmmaker, together with Heidy Quah, the Founder & Director of Refuge For The Refugees.
