Synthesis of the case study

The website provides information about the World Refugee Day, launched by UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR). It is a petition, a call to action to improve the lives of refugees. On 20 June, the world commemorates the strength, courage, and perseverance of millions of refugees. Held every year, World Refugee Day also marks a key moment for the public to show support for families forced to flee. The petition #WithRefugees went viral in September 2016 when people around the world petitioned to the right of ensuring education and a safe living place for every refugee child. The campaign wants to ensure that every refugee can work towards learning new skills to make a positive contribution to their community. The website is a good resource for relevant stories and videos that will, hopefully, encourage people to sign the petition and stand #WithRefugees.
