World Refugee Day 2002: Ecuador

World Refugee Day 2002: Ecuador

20 June 2002

UNHCR staff register refugees at the Douma registration center on the outskirts of Damascus. Registering with UNHCR ensures that the most vulnerable refugees receive aid.

World Refugee Day celebrations kicked off with a special forum at the Pontificia Catholic University in Quito. Held on 20 June, the forum complemented the campaign "Looking Towards the Future: a UNHCR vision" and provided UNHCR with the opportunity to discuss Ecuador's refugee situation with the general public.
