June 20th marks World Refugee Day. For many this day will past like any other day. However, In the past 5 years the world has witnessed one of the biggest refugee crisis since World War II. 65,000,000 is the number of people forcibly displaced from their homes. Millions more have since been displaced as a result of conflict and crisis around the globe. Since Syria’s civil conflict more than half of Syria’s population has been displaced. Over four million women, men, and children have fled the country and are refugees.
