At 13 years old Omar was forced to leave his home in Somalia because of war. He then worked in Libya until the conflict broke out in 2011. He fled across the border to the Choucha refugee camp in Tunisia. He was 17.

In 2012, there are 170,000 refugees around the world, like Omar, whose lives are on hold whilst they wait for resettlement to a safe country.

Only half of them will get the chance to restart their lives unless governments make more resettlement places available.
