Refugees & IDPs

UN Women

World Refugee day is June 20. There are 22.5 million refugees around the world today, and half of them—some 11 million—are women and girls. UN Women works with millions of people who have left their homes, loved ones and life as they knew, fleeing violence, persecution or disasters. We stand #WithRefugees. 

WFP

A few metres away, 22,000 people shelter under the protection of UN peacekeepers, aware that if they step outside of the razor wire fencing, their lives would be in instant danger.
