20 June is World Refugee Day

Join us this year on World Refugee Day and support refugees across the globe to be protected and included in health care, education and sport.

People who have been forced to flee often struggle to find a doctor when they are sick. Far from home, they struggle to find schools for their children or even a place for them to run around and play.

We work together with refugees every day to help them access these services and build better futures – and we need your help to achieve this!
