World Refugee Sunday

More than 70 million people worldwide are forcibly displaced, the majority of whom are women and children, according to the World Evangelical Alliance. That's roughly 1 in every 113 people.

World Refugee Sunday is held annually on the Sundays before and after June 20 (UN World Refugee Day) to remember this need and to participate in prayer and action, responding in practical ways to God’s call to "love the stranger as yourself."

New information, resources and useful links are available at the sites listed below. The suggested dates for 2020 are June 14 and 21, but you can hold World Refugee Sunday anytime.
