World Refugee Day is a day that we will show our respect for and honour the resilience and determination of millions of refugees around the world. It creates a chance to raise awareness of the plight of refugees around the world and how to protect their human languages. On 20th June, we celebrate World Refugee Day to honour the courage, strength and determination of such people.
The purpose is to commemorate and celebrate refugees from around the world. On June 20, 2001, the day was established to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees. World Refugee Day is a chance to raise awareness and empathy for the situation of refugees worldwide.
Certain essential rights are guaranteed to all refugees, notably the right to be protected from deportation. The more time a refugee spends in the host country, the more rights they are entitled to, because the more time they spend as refugees, the more rights they demand.
World Refugee Day puts light on the rights, needs, and aspirations of refugees, assisting in the mobilization of political will and assistance so that refugees not only thrive but prosper. While it is vital to protect and strengthen the lives of refugees on a daily basis, international days like World Refugee Day serve to raise public awareness about the situation of individuals escaping wars or persecution.
How is World Refugee Day celebrated?
Every year, World Refugee Day is commemorated with a series of activities in honor of refugees in many nations throughout the world. Immigrants, government officials, host organizations, corporations, performers, schoolchildren, and members of the general public, among others, lead or participate in these activities.
How to take an active part in celebrating World Refugee Day?
Be their friend and lend a helping hand!
Make contact with refugees in your area. If they’re looking for a place to stay, invite them to supper or let them stay in your guest room for a couple of nights. Introduce them to the local community so that they can become more acquainted with their new surroundings. Working as a group guide can be highly beneficial and even becoming a buddy can have a big positive impact on someone’s life.
Participate at a United Nations event
The UN aims to organize live online events on World Refugee Day to discuss the worldwide refugee situation, potential priorities related to the issue, and how to make a difference. Keep an eye out for summaries of the events’ activities so you can figure out how you might get involved.
Make the Most of Your Resources
Your technical knowledge can be put to good use. Volunteering your professional abilities to local refugee organizations is a great way to give back to the community. Last year, the UN stated that it hoped that all refugees would have access to an education, a safe place to live, and opportunities to work and contribute to their communities in the near future. If you operate a business or work in recruitment, you should consider hiring local refugees who are looking for work.
Refugees are entitled to the same treatment as other foreign nationals in a given country, and in many cases, the same treatment as nationals, according to its rules. The 1951 Convention specifies the number of rights for refugees, as well as emphasizing their obligations to their host country.
