Germany’s postal service Deutche Post and the Protestant social-advocacy group Diakone have chosen artwork by cartoonist Abdul Arts for a stamp that was issued this week to commemorate World Refugee Day. Abdul Arts (Abduallahi Muhiaddin) is himself a refugee, having been forced to flee Somalia and then Egypt after threats by both Somaili government agents and the militant group Al-Shaabbab because of his cartoons. In 2011, through the efforts of ICORN and CRNI, Abdul Arts was welcomed by the ICORN city of refuge Skien, Norway. Abdul Arts donated the money paid for the use of his artwork to a fund for refugees.
