As we mark World Refugee Sabbath on June 19 and World Refugee Day on June 20, almost 80 million people are currently displaced globally, according to UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. Refugee children are five times more likely to be out of school than non-refugee children. These numbers mean one thing: we cannot afford to waver in our response to help those displaced by conflict, persecution or disaster.

Watch Amira’s story to see what life is like for refugees like her around the world.
