World Refugee Day 20 June 2013

Posted On: 13 May 2013

UNHCR, the UN’s refugee agency, put the figure of displaced people at 43.7 million in 2011 – more than half are children.

Sobering statistics – every single one a human being with their lives in shreds, their futures uncertain – a father, a grandmother, a young boy, someone’s daughter, a mum…

Please help the Irish Refugee Council support refugees who come to Ireland looking for a place to call home, somewhere safe and welcoming.
