20 June is internationally recognized as World Refugee Day. In 2020 UNHCR reported that there are 79.5 million refugees around the world. Each figure represents just as many individual and very personal crises. UNHCR is the UN refugee agency with a mandate to protect people who have been forced to flee from war, conflict or persecution. UNHCR fights for the rights of refugees, provides life-saving emergency relief and creates solutions for a secure future.
