11.A refugee is a person who leaves his or her country to find a safer place to live. Refugees are usually running away
from their countries due to reasons of war or differences in beliefs or races. Millions of refugees are living in crowded
camps. The situation is particularly difficult for children. Losing their parents, many young refugees have become the
heads of their families. They have to act older and wiser than they really are.
It is said that the number of refugees has been going down by 18 percent. There are several reasons for this. First,
the smaller number of refugees may be caused by increased efforts to help refugees go back home. Another possible
reason is that it has become more difficult for people to seek help in other countries. For example, some countries have
changed the rules for refugees who want to cross their country lines and stay there.
Though the decreasing number is good news, there are still many people running away from their own country.
Hopefully, the world will try hard to keep refugee numbers down.
