There Are Thousands of People Around The World Unable Travel Due To Not Being From Anywhere!

There are many people that fall into a “statelessness” category in which they are not recognized by any country due to their inability to figure out where they come from.

Thousands, in fact!

Because of this unfortunate circumstance, they are unable to obtain a passport. Without a passport, they are unable to travel to any other country, even if the country may be their original country.

Fortunately, as late as 2012, the International Stateless Persons Organisation was formed by HH Prince Dr. Fernando Macolor Cruz, coming from the Philippines. His main goal was to fight for human rights to stateless people all over the world as well as give them representation so they would be able to live and travel as normal.

His idea of this organization was thought of during a conversation in 2008 with an American advocate for stateless people. Finally, they were given the ability to legally register four years later.
