World Refugee Day: World Refugee Day is celebrated on June 20th every year. As the name suggests, this day is celebrated to honour all the refugees of the world. As we all know refugees are forced to leave their homes because of wars, terror attacks, and other crises. But leaving their houses is just the first step, as the journey gets tougher and challenging later on.
While working on missions, Refugees have to stay in terrible weather conditions in camps until there target is completed. Refugees work very hard and it is important to praise them for their work, hence celebrating and supporting World Refugee Day is essential.
