20 June is World Refugee Day.  On that day, all over the world, particular attention is given to the millions of people who have to flee war and human rights violations or persecution. ECRE is joining refugee-assisting organisations in Belgium and UNHCR to call on everyone to stand #WithRefugees.

ECRE, UNHCR, Flemish Refugee Action, the Belgian Federal Agency for the reception of asylum seekers (Fedasil), the Belgian Red Cross and 11.11.11 are also supporting a concert with refugee artists organised with the Brussels Jazz Orchestra.

Various ECRE members are involved in organising events to mark this day in different countries, we invite you participate in those and show solidarity with refugees.
