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.
You can help refugees rebuild their lives. Take a stand with Special Envoy of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Angelina Jolie by adding your name to her new public service announcement – details here.
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 33.9 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.
