World Refugee Day is celebrated every year on 20 June. This international day was designated by the United Nations to honor refugees around the globe, shine a light on their plight, and work together to find long-term solutions to displacement.

The theme for World Refugee Day 2021 is “Together we heal, learn and shine,” and calls for greater inclusion of refugees in health systems, schools, and sport.

COVID-19 showed us that we can only be saved together. Our refugee sisters and brothers have contributed to their communities during these challenging times. Let us work together to ensure they are not left behind
