World refugee day celebrated around the Globe

World Refugee day celebrated

“I’ve met so many who have lost so much. But they never lose their dreams for their children or their desire to better our world. They ask for little in return – only our support in their time of greatest need” — UN Secretary-General, António Guterres

World Assembly of Youth (WAY) PR : In a world where violence forces thousands of families to flee for their lives each day, the time is now to show that the global public stands with refugees. To do this, the UN Refugee Agency launched the Refugees petition in June 2016 to send a message to governments that they must work together and do their fair share for refugees. According to UNHCR there are 65, 6 million forcibly displaced people worldwide, 22.5 million refugees, 10 million stateless people, and 189.300 refugees resettled.

World Refugee day is celebrated every year on the 20th of June to support millions of families all over the world who have lost their homes and dear ones because of violence or war. The day was established by the General Assembly of United Nations for the refugees to honor them for their courage of facing lots of problems after losing homes due to conflict or violence and their contributions to their communities. World refugee day celebration provides an opportunity to all to help the refugees worldwide to rebuild their quality lives through lots of related activities.

Refugees are provided variety of lifesaving assistance, safety and protection by the government agencies and organizations. They are provided tents, shelter, living materials supplies and served with the life-saving services. The goal of celebrating this event is increasing public awareness among common public by sharing the related refugee stories.

We, at the World Assembly of Youth (WAY), join other organisations on this day in the mission of recognising and appreciating refugees from all around the globe. We extend our support and respect to their strength to uphold against their suffering and carry on despite of all their difficulties. We advocate to the public sector and other stakeholders to join us in global effort of protecting all refugees around the World.

On this World Refugee Day, let us remember the plight of the millions of people worldwide who have been forced to flee from their homes as a result of conflict and persecution.
