World Refugee Day
(every year on 20 June)
“Refugees are people like anyone else, like you and me.
They led ordinary lives before becoming displaced, and their biggest dream is to be able to live normally again.
On World Refugee Day, let us recall our common humanity, celebrate tolerance and diversity
and open our hearts to refugees everywhere.”
~ Ban Ki-moon
The United Nations’ (UN) World Refugee Day is observed on 20 June each year. This event honors the courage, strength and determination of women, men and children who are forced to flee their homeland under threat of persecution, conflict and violence.
With 60 million refugees in our world today, we need God’s intervention and prayer for the church to know how to deal with this situation, and how to utilize the opportunity to generic viagra online share the gospel whilst assuming her responsibility to reach out to refugees.
Consider how radically your world would change if you were forced to leave your home and possessions without notice, and relocate to an area where you know no one and have little idea of where your next meal will come from! Take time today to pray for refugees across the world.
