We are currently facing the world’s largest humanitarian crisis since World War II. 4.6 million people have been forcibly displaced from Syria alone, and millions more have fled conflicts in Africa, Central Asia, and the Middle East.
As the world faces this crisis, we call on world leaders to adopt an approach that is based on empathy and a recognition of the fundamental human rights of refugees.
