ORLANDO, FL —Approximately 110 million people worldwide are forcibly displaced, with 36.4 million being refugees.* On World Refugee Day, June 20, individuals and organizations around the world will demonstrate solidarity with those who have been forced to flee from their home countries due to war, violent conflict, human rights violations, oppression and persecution.

On World Refugee Day, June 20, organizations around the world will demonstrate solidarity with those who have been forced to flee.“We have the opportunity to tangibly meet the critical physical needs of people experiencing this crisis firsthand and help give them a chance to encounter hope,” said Al Goff, president and CEO of Unto.

A global humanitarian organization, Unto is responding to the growing refugee crisis by distributing Refugee Hope Kits filled with essential items, such as food, water filters, clothing, and hygiene and medical supplies.
