“Home” is honoured to play a part in supporting UNHCR’s #WithRefugees campaign for World Refugee Day 2016.

With more people displaced by conflict in this world than at any time since the Second World War and with the situation continuing to intensify, the #WithRefugees campaign aims to build empathy and compassion for refugees. They are families, like ours, who are struggling to escape violence and leave everything behind – everything except their hopes and dreams for a safer future.

UNHCR believes all refugees deserve to live in safety. Add your name to the #WithRefugees petition to send a clear message to governments that they must act with solidarity and shared responsibility. We stand together #WithRefugees. Please stand with us.

The #WithRefugees petition will be delivered to UN headquarters in New York ahead of the UN High Level meeting on Refugees and Migrants on September 19, 2016. The petition asks governments to:

  • Ensure every refugee child gets an education.
  • Ensure every refugee family has somewhere safe to live.
  • Ensure every refugee can work or learn new skills to make a positive contribution to their community.
