UNHCR helps to protect 19.2 million refugees,
including 9 million children.



Female refugees are particularly vulnerable.

    Thanks for the reminder. it's easy to forget about our responsibilities in the midst of our own lives.

    Great post, VK! It's always good to bring attention to these worthwhile causes/organizations. As my float indicates, it's easy to forget about people in need.

    Glad you both enjoyed it...my blog seems to be quite "issue heavy" at the moment...think I'll have to do something light and fluffy soon!
