June 20, 2017: WORLD REFUGEE DAY

Our human duty: Acting on behalf of humanity and in solidarity with the refugees

The number of refugees in the world today stands at 65.5 million, of whom 22.5 million are refugees who have fled for their lives because of a real risk to their lives in their countries of origin.  More than half of them under the age of 18. Tens of millions of people who, because of varying circumstances, are seeking a better life on this earth.

Humans. Not statistics; with a rich tapestry of faces, names and histories, who are crying out to find a new life for themselves, a place they can call home.

Today we remember and remind everyone of the moral obligation of the entire world for solidarity and action to provide a proper response to the refugee crisis and to the refugees.

Tell them they are not alone!
