World Refugee Day – 20th June 2021
World Refugee Day honors the strength and courage of refugees. It encourages public awareness and support of the refugees, people who have fled their homelands because of conflict or natural disaster.
A pandemic has tested our strength and highlighted systematic inequalities. It has also connected us in new ways and renewed our motivation to act for equality.
In the time of COVID, we celebrate refugees who are on the frontlines fighting this pandemic, their hosts, and the aid workers supporting them. We have seen everyday heroes from all walks of life step up to join the front lines.
No matter who you are or where you come from, pandemic or not, every one of us can make a difference. Every action counts.
