2021 World Refugee Day : Together we heal, learn and shine

The World Refugee Day is an international day established by the United Nations to honour refugees worldwide. It is celebrated annually on June 20 and honours the strength and courage of people who have been forced to flee their home countries to escape conflict or persecution.

World Refugee Day is also an opportunity to build empathy and understanding for the plight of refugees and to highlight their ability to withstand hardship and rebuild their lives.

This year, the COVID-19 pandemic reminds us more than ever of the values of solidarity. 

We all had to do our part to ensure each other’s safety, and despite the difficulties, refugees and displaced people mobilised. 

Every day, refugees continue to contribute to a stronger, safer, more vibrant world.

That is why this year we are calling for greater inclusion of refugees in the health, education and sports systems…Only by working together, refugees, asylum seekers, organizations, governments, civil society, and other partners, can we recover from the pandemic. 

Together we learn, together we heal, together we shine… Together we can achieve anything. 

Each year, World Refugee Day is marked by a series of events in support of refugees throughout Tunisia. 

It is also marked by a variety of events in many countries around the globe in support of refugees. These activities are led by or involve refugees themselves, government officials, host communities, companies, celebrities, school children and the general public, among others.
