World Refugee Day 2016: Open Minds, Unlock Potential

This World Refugee Day, the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) urges you to remember we must not only provide refugees with a safe place to stay, but with opportunities to grow and contribute to society. Access to quality education allows refugees better to fulfil their own potential and fully contribute to the growth, strength and stability of communities. Knowledge is the one thing that no war or disaster can seize. Let’s educate ourselves in the highest sense and learn from one another. This World Refugee Day, let’s take the opportunity to mobilise our compassion and put our Mercy in Motion.
