Somali Refugees And Businessman in China Wait for Peace Back Home

GUANGZHOU, CHINA - FEBRUARY 3, 2019: Fahima Abdullahi, a Somali refugee living in Guangzhou, hugs her daughter Hidaya on February 3, 2019 in Guangzhou, China. According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, there are approximately 100 Somali refugees and asylum seekers registered in China. Most Somali refugees in China live in Guangzhou -- a city in Guangdong Province that has become a hub for African business in China. Once asylum seekers are granted refugee status by the United Nations, they can request resettlement to another country. A large number of China’s Somali refugees are slotted for resettlement to the United States but many have been waiting years for approval. Although China signed the 1951 Refugee Convention, the government does not have a procedure for determining refugee status. As a result, refugees and asylum seekers are subject to national immigration laws. Refugees are not entitled to residency and not legally allowed to work while awaiting resettlement. According to the World Bank, as of 2017 there were 320,699 refugees registered in China. Around one percent of the world’s refugees are resettled every year. (Photo by Betsy Joles/ Getty Images)
