Celebrating the gifts of reguees

Well over a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, with the impact of the climate emergency continuing to be felt, and with multiple overlapping crises ongoing across the globe, the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) joins the rest of the world in marking World Refugee Day on June 20 with a push for inclusion and a celebration of the gifts refugees offer their local communities.

The global UNHCR theme for World Refugee Day 2021, “Together we heal, learn, and shine”, runs well in line with the LWF’s approach, and comes with a call for greater inclusion of refugees – in health systems, in schools, in sport – spotlighting the importance of standing together, not least as the world continues to face the impact of COVID-19.
