#Snapshots June

Some of what we saw in our programs around the world in June

On June 20th, we honored refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) across the world for World Refugee Day. We took part in various efforts to remember the millions of displaced men, women, and children around the world who deserve to be safe, healthy and thriving.
