Being aware of the plight of refugees around the world
In addition to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals) this blog is linked to the UNHCR (The UN Refugee Agency) as well as the Refugee Council UK in respect to refugees around the world. Below are some links which give specific information about different campaigns where people from around the world are raising awareness and undertaking campaigns to help refugees. Raymond Van Neste’s campaign is also linked.
The work of the UNHCR and other agencies
The UNHCR and the Refugee Council work alongside several other global agencies such as the Red Cross, Medecins San Frontieres (MSF) and the World Food Programme (WFP), who work continuously to help refugees. These and other global agencies help refugees no matter where they are from and no matter what are their circumstances and this is relevant particularly now at this time of the Covid-19 pandemic.
