December 18th is International Migrants Day. Throughout history, immigration has been seen as a courageous example of someone trying to overcome adversity.
However, today’s views on migration are met with elements of trepidation, emergency, and complexity. This year, the United Nations is trying to play the role of catalyst in order to create global cooperation in managing migration. The goal is to show the benefits of migration as well as protect the human rights of all those concerned.
“Evidence overwhelmingly shows that migrants generate economic, social and cultural benefits for societies everywhere,” said Secretary-General António Guterres in his message commemorating the International Day
In recent years, we have seen the highest levels of forced displacement on record.
Over 65.5 million people were forced from their homes in 2016. The United Nations shows that of those displaced, 22.5 million are under the age of 18. Over half of the refugees in 2016 came from South Sudan, Afghanistan and Syria.
Every day, over 28, 300 people are forced to flee their homes due to conflict and persecution. Aldelano Solar Cold Chain Solutions seeks to equip organizations and governments providing aid to these refugees with sustainable resources that are up to the challenge. We offer robust, industrial-grade solar refrigeration, solar power generation, solar atmospheric water and ice generation.
There are many complexities for managing this global crisis. Aldelano Solar Cold Chain Solutions can assist with the on-the-ground emergency assistance for refugee camps. Refugee camps often lack power for warmth and cooking as well as clean water. Our mobile resources can eliminate two of these challenges. With only 189, 300 refugees resettled out of the 65.6 million forcibly displaced in 2016, we can assume the resettlement process will take years.
“This new era has created challenges and opportunities for societies throughout the world. It also has served to underscore the clear linkage between migration and development, as well as the opportunities it provides for co-development, that is, the concerted improvement of economic and social conditions at both origin and destination.” – UN.org
There is a long road between forced displacement, resettlement and development. Aldelano Solar Cold Chain Solutions resources are cost-effective and provide governments or non-profits with robust solutions to the ongoing challenges of the migration crisis. These mobile resources are available when people need food, water, and electricity most. Each individual unit has the power to serve thousands with little maintenance or hassle.
When there is a need to serve many, Aldelano Solar Cold Chain Solutions can provide mobile, life-saving resources.
