We are now witnessing the highest levels of displacement on record.

 
 

An unprecedented 68.5 million people around the world have been forced from home. Among them are nearly 25.4 million refugees, over half of whom are under the age of 18.

There are also an estimated 10 million stateless people who have been denied a nationality and access to basic rights such as education, healthcare, employment and freedom of movement.

In a world where nearly 1 person is forcibly displaced every two seconds as a result of conflict or persecution, our work is more important than ever before.

I stole these facts directly from UNHCR website, so we will have to play with the wording :)
