World Refugee Day, June 20.

World Refugee Day is held every year on June 20. It is a special day when the world takes time to recognize the resilience of forcibly displaced people throughout the world.

On World Refugee Day 2013, we are focussing on the impact of conflict on families through the theme of  
‘1 Family Torn Apart by War is Too Many’.
During the weeks leading up to World Refugee Day 2013 and on the day itself, we are encouraging local, national and international communities to reflect on what we can do in order to help those who are forced to flee to find safety, regain hope and rebuild their lives.
For more information or to let us know your plans for World Refugee Day, email us at

2013 Theme: Take 1 minute to support a family forced to flee
