MADE51 Syrian Refugee Brave Ibis Ornament
Brave Ibis Ornament:
MADE51 is a project of the UNHCR (UN High Commissioner for Refugees), a global organization dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights and building a better future for refugees, forcibly displaced communities, and stateless people. By pairing refugee artisans with experienced social enterprises in their host country, MADE51 stimulates local economies while fostering a mutually beneficial relationship between refugee artisans and their hosts.
Crafted by Syrian refugee women living in Turkey, this colorful cotton bird is an homage to the national bird of Syria, the Northern Bald Ibis. The bird has symbolized brilliance and splendor since the times of Ancient Egypt, and is now critically endangered.
Each ornament is individually packaged and ready for gift-giving in a MADE51 box, complete with an artisan story card.
