World Refugee Day – 6/20/2017

June 20 is World Refugee Day.  Every year on June 20, the United Nations commemorates the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of refugees.

Here is the UN Secretary General Video Message.

And here is another video presented by the UN about Yusra Mardini, member of the Refugee Olympics Athletes Team and Goodwill Ambassador for The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

You can read (in Spanish) Día Mundial del Refugiado: las cifras que sacan los colores (una vez más) al mundo at El Huffpost.  The subtitle of this article is “Una persona desplazada cada tres segundos”: nuevo récord de refugiados en 2016.

We all must do what we can to end this horrific crisis.
