World Refugee Day

Millions of families have lost their homes to violence and war
1 refugee family without shelter is too many

Each year on June 20th the United Nations and countless civic groups around the world celebrate World Refugee Day.

World Refugee Day was established by the United Nations to honor the courage, strength and determination of women, men and children who are forced to flee their homes under threat of persecution, conflict and violence. Millions need your help.

Most people in America don’t realize – there are over 43.7 million refugees and internally displaced people around the world and of those, UNHCR provides lifesaving assistance and protection to 34 million of them.

Imagine being the mother of a sick and hungry child and having to decide between risking your life staying in a conflict or leaving behind everything in search of safety. UNHCR provides tents, shelter, supplies and life-saving services to refugees – 80% are women and children. Millions of refugees need help all around the world – 1 family torn apart by war is too many.

Our goal is to share refugee stories with you – to get the word out, so compassionate people across America will extend their generosity and concern to support – 1 family at a time. You can help us. Please take action now.

Stay and risk being killed? Escape, and risk rape, kidnap or worse?

What would you do?  Refugees have no choice... but you do.
