BENEFITING: US Association for UNHCR
EVENT DATE: Nov 17, 2016
This year, instead of receiving presents I very truly do not need, I decided to "give up" my birthday and I am asking my friends and family to donate to the UNHCR, The United Nations High Comissioner for Refugees, in lieu of gifts.
"Our primary purpose at UNHCR is to safeguard the rights and well-being of people who have been forced to flee. Together with partners and communities, we work to ensure that everybody has the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another country. We also strive to secure lasting solutions." - UNHCR
As the world is facing a multitude of threats and issues and imminent danger, any help we can give to those forced to flee their homes is worth it. With no possesions to their name, these refugees need any and all help possible. Thank you so much for helping me make my birthday meaningful.
