Refugee Week 2020

During this week we think and pray about refugees and migrants who have had to leave their homes, livelihoods and countries. An unprecedented 70.8 million people around the world have been forced from home. Among them are nearly 25.9 million refugees, over half of whom are children under the age of 18.

These are not just numbers, they are people, made in God’s image, like you and me. They are our neighbours.

All We Can, the Methodist Church in Britain and World Development & Relief are responding across the globe, enabling vulnerable communities to access the support they need. We are working to maintain essential health services, deliver soap and hygiene items and provide vital community healthcare education to Rohingya refugees living in the camps of Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh.
