World Refugee Day is a yearly celebration on the 20th of June, to support millions of families all over the world who have lost their homes and dear ones because of violence or war. World refugee day celebration provides an opportunity for all to help promote public awareness and advocacy about refugees around the world.
World Refugee Day has been observed ever since the UN General Assembly, on 4 December 2000, In this resolution, the General Assembly noted that 2001 marked the 50th anniversary of the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees.
Today, staff at CC Refugee Services Program, we wear our teal shirts in support of our clients and all of those that have gone through the resettlement journey and the many that are in the process of starting a new life, free of violence, war and persecution.
