Maggie Standiff from Refugee Home Partners https://www.refugeehopepartners.org/ was our guest speaker on Wednesday 5/17.
Did you know that there are 100m forcibly displaced people worldwide?
Of these 27.5m are registered refugees.
Refugees are people who have fled war, violence, conflict or persecution and have crossed an international border to find safety in another country.
41% of the world’s displaced people are children. One person becomes displaced every 2 seconds.
