China is facing lots of religious persecution of Christians. Some Christians in China want to migrate away because they are treated harshly for holding church-like meetings and also for owning bibles. The Christians migrate to surrounding countries such as the Philippians, Japan, Indonesian areas, The Middle East, and Russia to escape the persecution so they can live in religious freedom
Afghanistan is a country in the Middle East facing some ethnic persecution. Since the events on 9/11, Muslim terrorists have killed some people of the Hazara community in the southwestern Pakistani and Afghan areas. Now those people have fled to far parts of Afghanistan and the Middle East and some as far as Australia to seek safety from being ethnically persecuted for how they live.
The Philippians is a country which has some environmental factors affecting how people live. The country is home to a warm climate, volcanoes, plenty of water bodies, and storms.
