Yesterday, on World Refugee Day, the UNHCR released the latest numbers on forced displacement in the world today and they are staggering.

- 68.5 million people are forcibly displaced
- 44,400 people must flee their home every day
- Out of 3 million new refugees in 2017, only 100,000 were resettled

This Fall, Development and Peace-Caritas Canada will be joining Caritas Internationalis’ global campaign Share the Journey on forced displacement.

Through this campaign, that was launched by Pope Francis, you will be invited to learn about the complex causes that force people from their homes and what you can do to make a difference.

We hope you will share the journey with us.
