World Refugee Day
Each year on June 20th the United Nations and countless civic groups around the world celebrate World Refugee Day.
World Refugee Day was established by the United Nations to honor the courage, strength and determination of women, men and children who are forced to flee their homes under threat of persecution, conflict and violence. Millions need your help. Uganda celebrated the day at the Old kampala play ground, with the Minister for disaster preparedness and refugees Hon. Stephen Malinga being the chief guest.
