Everyone can make a difference

Every action counts



We mark this World Refugee Day in the midst of dramatic social change.   

A pandemic has tested our strength and highlighted systematic inequalities. It has also connected us in new ways and renewed our motivation to act for equality.

In the time of COVID, we celebrate refugees who are on the frontlines fighting this pandemic, their hosts and the aid workers supporting them. We have seen everyday heroes from all walks of life step up to join the front lines.

No matter who you are or where you come from, pandemic or not; everyone of us can make a difference. Every action counts.

Join us in creating an inclusive world
