World Refugee Day, also known as International Volunteer Week, is a time to raise funds and awareness for those who need our help and assistance. On this day, we are reminded of the millions of men, women, and children who are displaced or risk their lives trying to cross borders in search of safety. During this week, communities all over the world come together to show their support and offer aid where it is needed most. If you want to make a difference and help those in need this season, there are many ways that you can do just that!
One way that you can involve yourself and your community on World Refugee Day is by hosting a dinner party for local schools and youth organizations. Often, this can involve hosting an event in your home, in the park, or at a local park. Invite local churches and civic groups to host similar dinners. The proceeds from the dinner will go towards hosting an event for refugees in your community that aims to bring awareness to the plight of these hard-working and innocent people. Many local charitable organizations and companies also have their own plans for World Refugee Day. They usually begin their plans around this time because they believe that there needs to be more than one person learning about the issues and problems of this season.
You can also participate in the fight against AIDS and HIV through one of many ways that you can find. One way is by making a donation to the Red Cross or other such organization that deals directly with HIV and AIDS. There are also organizations that focus solely on issues of the health and wellbeing of people in developing countries through the distribution of low-cost foods, household items, and other necessities. If you are in Africa, you can make a donation and visit an HIV/AIDS centre where you can volunteer, teach schoolchildren, or conduct an AIDS education. All of these actions taken collectively will strengthen and improve the front lines of fighting against AIDS and HIV. Every action counts towards a positive outcome.
The United Nations and other international bodies involved in dealing with the refugees and issues of displaced people do so much to ensure that every person has the opportunity to survive and thrive. It is their mandate to ensure that every person has access to food, water, shelter and medical attention when they are in need. On World Refugee Day, it is important that we show our concern and extend to the host communities the same caring hand that we extend to the people of Darfur and the people of South Kina. By participating in sporting events and other forms of social interaction, we can strengthen our own societies and peoples’ ability to deal with these issues and survive.
Many local and international organizations are working with refugees and the victims of violence on a daily basis. Through projects focusing on nutrition and the promotion of safe water and sanitation among other efforts, they are working diligently to help the world’s most vulnerable people. One of the best ways that you can participate on World refugee Day is to donate to an organization that helps deal with the issues of displaced and persecuted refugee children. There are many organizations that are working hard to save these young victims of war, violence and poverty.
Donating to an organization that helps these innocent children give a future to a struggling family is one way that you can support the world’s most vulnerable people. It is a noble and self-sacrificing act to choose to give to an organization that actively promotes a positive and secure future for the displaced and persecuted. Through the sponsorship and donations of individuals like you and I, the strength and future of these innocent children will be strengthened. You can make a difference by purchasing items online that fund the education and survival of the many thousands of displaced and persecuted refugees around the world. You can contribute directly or by becoming a sponsor for a group that is doing good work in helping to care for these defenseless human beings. Making a donation to an organization that focuses on assisting the refugees and the people trying to flee their home is one way that you can show your compassion and commitment to the renewal of hope and life for the many refugees who suffer under the harsh conditions of life in the twenty-first century.
