Woman with Child

Dear Friends,

Today is World Refugee Day, a time when we remember the plight of those who have no home. Here is a picture of a young family after being told they cannot seek refuge in Bangladesh. Forcing refugees to return to the country from which they seeking refuge is called 'refoulment', and it is a crime.

I ask that you remember refugees today, and consider what you can do to help them. The full article by Human Rights Watch is given here.

Best Regards,
