Tomorrow is World Refugee Day. Did you know that over 43 million members of our global family are refugees, having fled their homes to escape conflict, persecution, or natural disasters? Africa suffers from more than its fair share of civil war and ethnic strife, and thus millions of families in the Congo, Mali, and Sudan have fled their homelands and are currently in limbo.May be it is me, but at times like this Action is needed more than even more words. After all, talk is cheap--Actions; not words are needed. Enough Said.
World Refugee Day, created by the United Nations in 2000, is a chance for you to help change all this. Our friends at TakePart have collected some opportunities to help you fight the food crisis in the Sahel, protect vulnerable women in Mauritania, support primary education for refugees in Sudan, and more.
