World Refugee Day

In honour of World Refugee Day, we are pleased to share with you the latest videos from our #FaithOverFear campaign, a joint initiative of Religions for Peace, UNICEF, and a global coalition of religious leaders and organisations.




We invite you to view and share the inspiring video of our religious leaders, and stories about families of faith from around the world who have opened their hearts, homes, and communities to refugees. By lifting up these heartwarming stories, we hope to contribute to a more welcoming environment for refugees around the globe

Visit to learn more about the campaign and to get involved.
