World Refugee Day 2014

E-mail Print

World Refugee Day is held every year on June 20. It is a special day when the world takes time to recognize the resilience of forcibly displaced people throughout the world.

For World Refugee Day 2014, we will continue our global "1 Campaign", keeping with the theme: "1 family torn apart by war is too many".
