Join the World Refugee Day

World Refugee Day was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in 2000.

Every year on 20 June, the United Nations, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and civil society groups around the world hold events to draw public attention to the millions of refugees and internally displaced persons who have been forced to flee their homes due to wars, conflicts and persecution.

World Refugee Day is celebrated in more than 100 countries, including Ukraine. We welcome you to join our future event or initiate your own.

If you have an idea for organizing an event for the World Refugee Day, or want to volunteer at the existing events, let us know by writing to the email – [email protected]

World Refugee day is an opportunity to remember all these who have had to leave their homes, livelihoods and quite often extended family to seek protection and shelter.
