What is a Refugee?!?

A refugee is a person who has fled their home and cannot return because they fear their life is in danger. Where do they go, you ask? Well, most end up in refugee camps, which many of lack water, electricity, sanitation, and health care. These camps are overcrowded and unhygienic.

There are a total of 10,600,000 refugees worldwide!!! Want to know something else that is shocking? In 2004, worldwide, about 3,000,000 people (8,000 a day), left home to seek safety in another country!!!
