Sunset in the camps

World Refugee Day

Today is world refugee day.

Take a moment to think about the 20+ million refugees in the world today who have been forced to leave their countries and livelihoods behind.

Today we think about what resilience and strength people have to go on after having lost so much. In new countries, new communities, new cultures, people find a way as hard as it is and as many obstacles there seems to be, to rebuild their lives and community.

As the sunsets today it will also be the time for Iftar. Friends and family will gather to eat and celebrate the break of fast. People have lost so much, but they never lose their love for family and togetherness.
