June 20 is World Refugee Day, a day the world commemorates the strength, courage, and perseverance of millions of refugees. Held every year, World Refugee Day also marks a key moment for the public to show support for families forced to flee.

As the number of people forced to flee their homes continues to grow, it is the world’s poorest countries that are shouldering much of the responsibility for refugees. Meanwhile, the global response to large-scale movements of people remains inadequate and underfunded, leaving refugees with an uncertain future.

We are calling for an end to this, and need your help.

UNHCR is working on a new, more systematic vision for supporting the world's refugees, but is calling on Australian citizens to get behind it.
So far, over 18,000 Australians have pledged their support for refugees. Will you?
