I'm going without food for 30 hours to raise money to support refugees.
There are 65.6 million forcibly displaced people worldwide, 22.5 million of them are refugees.
55% of refugees come from three countries: South Sudan (1.4 mil), Afghanistan (2.5mil), Syria (5.5mil). Refugees are people who leave their homes due to extreme violence, collapsed infrastructure, and famine. This doesn't only affect adults, it is especially hard on children. Refugee children suffer diseases and malnutrition, are subject to being child laborers and child soldiers, have a lack of education, and are vulnerable to child marriage and abuse.
But when we come together, there's hope. 189,300 refugees were resettled in 2016, thanks to people like you. It may seem like you can’t help by yourself, but when we come together we can accomplish anything. So let's keep on chasing.
