There are 65.6 million forcibly displaced persons according to UNHCR. Thousands of displaced families flee for their lives each day because of violence and conflicts. The world has not seen this level of thousands of displaced families fleeing for their lives each day because of violence.
In June 2016, the UN Refugee Agency launched the #WithRefugees petition to send a message to governments that they must work together and do their fair share for refugees. On World Refugee Day, held every year on June 20, we join them in commemorating the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of refugees.
For 2018, World Refugee Day also marks a key moment for the public to show support for families forced to flee. Together with JRS International, we are adopting the campaign #Do1Thing.
Join us in our activities which include mass, exhibitions and fundraising.
