Author and Reporter
Chaker Khazaal – Palestinian-Canadian author, speaker, reporter, and Huffington Post contributor – grew up in Bourj el-Barajneh refugee camp, in his host country Lebanon.
Having experienced first-hand the humiliation of ‘displacement’, Chaker is an advocate for refugees and aspiring writers. He travels to camps speaking to refugees living in conflict zones. His Confessions of a War Child novels and articles humanize conflict and displacement.
Addressing global displacement, Chaker’s messages focus on the rise of terrorist acts, the ongoing unrest in the Middle East, and the importance of giving opportunities to refugees.
