Education
JRS Asia Pacific has considered education to be a form of protection for refugees since Fr Pierre Ceyrac started an education program for Kmer refugees in 1980. The focus on education continues as JRS AP supports education programs in four refugee sites along the Thai/Burma border. In Mae Hong Son, JRS works with the Karenni Education Department to provide training for teachers. JRS also provides adult education in the camps to provide skills for those who wish to be resettled.

Detention
JRS offers legal, health, and psycho/social support to those detained, and has offered pastoral care as well. JRS is now involved in release-return, offering to assist those who wish to leave detention and return to their home countries.

Internally displaced persons
Internally displaced persons are persons who have been forced to flee or to leave their homes in particular as a result of or in order to avoid the effects of armed conflict, situations of generalised violence, violations of human rights or natural or human-made disasters, and who have not crossed an internationally recognised State border.

Urban refugees
Because JRS seeks to work with those “on the fringes of humanity,” JRS Asia Pacific has taken into account the needs of refugees living both in the camps, and those in urban areas. JRS Asia Pacific works in the urban areas of the region providing psycho-social services and social casework.

Online retreat
Confronted by the conflict, slaughter, and seemingly endless anguish in so many other places in our world, we wonder how God can allow such things to happen. The Old Testament describes how the people of Israel suffered war, violence, famine, persecution, and exile, and how they tried to find the presence of the loving God of the covenant in all those harsh realities.
