Refugees are those who are forced to leave their country and flee elsewhere due to war, torture, conflict, and violence.

These people are exposed to violence or harassment and are forced to leave the comfort of their homes due to “well-founded fear of persecution because of his/her race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion” as per the definition given by the United Nations.

In December 2000, the United Nations decided to celebrate Africa Refugee Day i.e. June 20 as World Refugee Day and since 2001, the United Nations celebrates World Refugee Day on June 20 every year.
