First started 19 years ago, World Refugee Day is observed in more than 100 countries to raise awareness of the plight of refugees and those internally displaced due to conflict or natural disasters. This year’s theme is #StepwithRefugees, inviting everyone to take big and small steps in solidarity of refugees.
