A 2020 report from UNHCR found that 1% of people in the world are currently displaced - forced to flee their home because of conflict, persecution or events that have severely disrupted their society. If you’re sheltering in another country, you’re considered a refugee. And if you’re attempting to become a refugee, you’re seeking asylum. Imagine the heartache of losing your home and separating from your family, the fear and desperation of searching for a safe haven, and the anxious uncertainty about your fate in a strange land.
In many safe countries, asylum seekers and refugees have become political footballs, and governments struggle to respond with meaningful action. However, support from everyday people around the world has meant that the global impact sector can provide life-saving services to people seeking refuge. From assisting families as they navigate complex foreign-language legal systems, to supplying food, clothes and trauma counselling, this cause is one defined by the kindness and compassion of strangers.
