World Refugee Day 2019

Post by mitsubachi » 20 Jun 2019, 18:44

June 20 is the day set aside to think about our neighbours who have been forced from their homes for a variety of reasons. It has been celebrated since 2000. The aim is to build empathy and awareness. We can aspire to live in a more peaceful world. Please take a moment to honour the resilience and determination of ordinary people simply trying to keep their families safe in impossible circumstances.

How to be an ally:
