World Refugee Day (June 20th) celebrates the strength and courage of people who have been forced to flee their home country to escape conflict or persecution. While it is important to protect and improve the lives of refugees every single day, international days like World Refugee Day help to focus global attention on the plight of those fleeing conflict or persecution.
