On June 20th is the World Refugee Day. Every year, people around the world commemorate the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of refugees together. Until now, over 68.5 million individuals have been forcibly displaced worldwide as a result of persecution, conflict, violence or human rights violations. Today, the world’s forcibly displaced population remains at a record high.
During the World Refugee Day, individuals and businesses can support refugees in many ways. Some ways include taking part in #StepWithRefugees Global Challengeorganised by The UN Refugee Agency, or by supporting Talent Beyond Boundaries (the only organisation in the world connecting refugees to international job opportunities, opening labor mobility as a complementary solution to traditional refugee resettlement).
This year Tecknuovo is supporting World Refugee Day by participating in Donate Your Dayand donating one day’s salary to War Child UK. War Child UK is a non-governmental organisation founded in the UK in 1993 which provides assistance to children in areas experiencing conflict and the aftermath of conflict. Their main objective is to reach more children in conflict areas as early as possible when conflict breaks out, and stay on to support them. In 2015, the number of children, young people and adults who received direct support from War Child was 126,000!
By donating one day’s salary to War Child, anyone can enable over two children caught up in a war in Asia, Africa and the Middle East to go to school in a safe environment for a full year. Tecknuovo team are supporting War Child to help protect, educate and stand up for the rights of children caught up in war.
