STAND UP FOR REFUGEES
There are more refugees, asylum seekers and displaced people worldwide than at any time since World War II. Nearly 60 million people have fled their homes to escape conflict and disaster. They are the world’s most vulnerable people: mothers and fathers struggling to feed their children; sons and daughters missing out on an education; people dying for want of basic medical care. Many live with fear and uncertainty – some have been injured or abused. But like us they have hopes and dreams. They want to survive and make the world that we share a better place. We believe that when people all over the world work together, big changes really are possible. We’re passionate about building a better world. And that’s why we’ve made it our mission to act in partnership with other passionate people, like you to stand against injustice. We don’t think there is any task more important.
