#WithRefugees

Today 20 June is World Refugee Day.

Will you stand #WithRefugees ?

As UNHCR says, each day war forces thousands of families to flee their homes.

People like you, people like me.

To escape the violence, they leave everything behind – everything except their hopes and dreams for the future. UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, believes that all refugees deserve to live in safety.

Add your name to the #WithRefugees petition. These words will send a clear message to governments that they must act with solidarity and shared responsibility.

The #WithRefugees petition will be delivered to UN Headquarters in New York ahead of the UN General  Assembly meeting on 19 September.

The Petition asks governments to ensure every refugee child gets an education, ensure every refugee family has somewhere safe to live and ensure every refugee can work or learn new skills to make a positive contribution to their community.

The crying need for action is black and white. Drawing attention to the plight of refugees is is one of the greatest gifts you can give.

We stand together#WithRefugees.

Stand with us.
