June 20th 2018 marks World Refugee Day. Refugee Utility Project welcomes you to celebrate and commemorate this important day with us.
Violence, on a global level, destroys homes and threatens the lives of thousands of families on a daily basis. By standing together to support the survivors of these harrowing events, we can show refugees all over the world that there are people who care about them and their circumstances.
You can demonstrate your support on June 20th by spreading awareness about the day. Simply take to Twitter with the #WithRefugees hashtag to help spread the message. You can also sign the World Refugees Petition here, and pledge as much as you like to aid their desperate situation. It's important to not only support refugees, but also to pay tribute to the strength and courage these people – and the aid workers who assist them – demonstrate in their struggle each day.
On World Refugee Day and the danger all refugees face, UN Secretary-General, António Guterres, comments:
"This not about sharing a burden. It is about sharing a global responsibility, based not only the broad idea of our common humanity but also on the very specific obligations of international law. The root problems are war and hatred, not people who flee; refugees are among the first victims of terrorism."
