Refugee Carnival 2012 is planned to enable participation of refugees from different refugee communities. This event’s objective is to raise public awareness about refugee issues and how we can help secure basic rights for refugee communities. The event is organised by JUMP (Northern Network of Migrants and Refugees), whose mission is to create an environment in Penang which is welcoming of refugees and migrant workers and respectful of their basic rights, not least their right for self-determination.

Refugee Carnival 2012 dianjur untuk membolehkan penyertaan orang pelarian dari komuniti pelarian yang berbeza. Objektif karnival ini adalah untuk memberi kesedaran kepada orang pelarian tentang hak
mereka dan kesedaran kepada orang awam mengenai isu-isu pelarian. Acara ini adalah selaras dengan misi JUMP (Jaringan Utara Migrasi dan Pelarian) yang mengalu-alukan, menghormati dan juga menyokong hak
asasi manusia untuk migrasi dan pelarian di Utara Semenanjung Malaysia.
