World Refugee Day

Each year on June 20th the United Nations, Save the Children and humanitarian organizations from around the world celebrate World Refugee Day.

World Refugee Day was established by the United Nations to honor the courage, strength and determination of women, men and children who are forced to flee their homes under threat of persecution, conflict and violence. Millions need your help. In honor of World Refugee Day, Save the Children celebrates brave children who have been forced to flee their homes – and rebuild their lives.

Right now, Save the Children is currently responding to 60 crises in 42 countries, including the needs of refugees forced to flee brutal conflict in Syria and South Sudan. Learn more about our work and find out how you can help.
