World Refugee Day 2012

So sad!

Today marks World Refugee Day, which the United Nations uses to raise awareness of the plight of the estimated 42 million displaced people worldwide. A UN report released this week showed that 800,000 people were forced to flee across borders last year — more than any time since 2000. In a message to mark the day, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said, “Refugees leave because they have no choice. We must choose to help.” — Lloyd Young¬†(30 photos total)
