World Refugee Day 2020
Let’s Protect them With Arms Wide Open
We celebrate the strength, courage, and perseverance of millions of refugees on World Refugee Day, which is held on June 20 each year. Since 2001, the United Nations and more than 100 countries have observed World Refugee Day annually. Each year this day is marked by a variety of events in many countries around the world in support of the refugees. To end the refugee crisis and find homes for these displaced people we all must work together. To better understand the current refugee crisis, we must know the situation worldwide.
Why is World Refugee Day important?
World Refugee Day sheds light on refugees’ freedoms, needs, and preferences, helping to mobilize political will and funds so that refugees will not only live but also develop. While protecting and improving the lives of refugees every day is important, international days such as World Refugee Day help to focus global attention on the plight of those who flee conflict or oppression. Many activities held on World Refugee Day create opportunities to support refugees.
