World Refugee Day
Every minute 20 people leave everything behind to escape war, persecution, or terror.
Serve the City International commemorates one day a month to highlight a specific worldwide shared concern. The 20th of June is set aside by the United Nations as World Refugee Day. Many of our cities around the world put on special volunteer events for people experiencing the hardships of leaving war-torn and politically unstable nations. Did you know every minute 20 people leave everything behind to escape war, persecution, or terror?
We can help bring awareness, we can connect and get to know a refugee, and we can help people understand the realities of refugees. Join Serve the City in commemorating World Refugee Day for and take a #StepWithRefugees.
A note to current STC city leaders, core teams, and volunteers: STC has created a social media graphics package for each of our monthly world days, you can use these to promote and spread awareness to this global concern and link to this page.
