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".

During the weeks leading up to World Refugee Day 2014 and on the day itself, we are encouraging local, national and international communities to reflect on what we can do in order to help those who are forced to flee to find safety, regain hope and rebuild their lives.
