Reflect on... the Situation of Refugees

According to figures released by the United Nations in 2016, over 65 million people have been globally displaced. Wars and persecution have driven more people from their homes than at any time since UNHCR records began.

Twenty-four people are displaced every minute and one in every 113 people on the planet is now either an asylum-seeker, internally displaced or a refugee.

Every one of these figures is a human story.

80 years apart, these two refugees have more in common than you’d think. Harry aged 92 and Ahmed aged 12 share their stories.
