UBER AND UNHCR JOIN FORCES FOR VOICES – WORLD REFUGEE DAY 2016.

YOUR VOICE, COULD DO SOMETHING AMAZING TODAY.

Every day thousands of innocent families are forced to flee their homes because of war and civil conflict.

PEOPLE LIKE YOU, PEOPLE LIKE ME. 

To escape the violence, they leave everything behind – their lives, their freedoms, their home – everything except their hopes and dreams for a safer future for themselves and their children. 

Today, June 20, marks the annual World Refugee Day, when we commemorate the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of refugees. World Refugee Day also marks a key moment for the public to give their voice and show support for families forced to flee.

ON THIS WORLD REFUGEE DAY, JOIN UNHCR AND UBER BY GIVING YOUR VOICE TO THE REFUGEES, SO THE WORLD CAN HEAR THEIRS.

Show solidarity with the refugees living in our region today, become a voice now by joining the campaign at voices.unhcr.org.





BECOME A VOICE FOR REFUGEES NOW

By joining UNHCR’s #Voices4Refugees, you will:

  1. Comfort Refugees: Ensure that the world hasn’t forgotten about them, and there are many people out there that feel their pain, and admire their perseverance and resilience.
  2. Echo their need: So individuals, governments, the private sector and communities continue to offer much needed support.
  3. Bring Positive Change into their lives: By supporting and encouraging positive initiatives that empower refugee communities to overcome their hardship, and change negative public sentiments where they exist.

Together, we can make these voices count.
