Image
I pledged to support the "Blue Key Campaign" which the United States Association for UNHCR (USA for UNHCR) launched  to channel the energy of individual citizens to speak out for refugees. "No one chooses to be a refugee" words of Antonio Guterres, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees. These folks are forcibly displaced from their homes and very often struggle for bare necessities of life. Everyone's support is necessary for providing a lasting solution to this refugee crisis. Read stories that will bring tears to your eyes http://www.thebluekey.org/book/index.php and you will realize how lucky you are not to face these hardships
