World Refugee Day 2016

On June 20 each year, the world commemorates the strength, courage, and resilience of millions of refugees. UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, believes now is the time to show world leaders that the global public stands #WithRefugees. To do this, UNHCR launched #WithRefugees petition in June to send a message to governments that they must work together and do their fair share for refugees.
