Refugee Week is celebrated across Australia each year in June. Refugee Week promotes greater awareness of refugees, the issues they face, and their contributions to the Australian community.
Everyday, millions of people across the world embark on dangerous journeys for the sole purpose of finding safety and freedom. From Australia to nations across the globe, settling into a new environment after experiencing the perils of a refugee’s journey can also provide the opportunity to live, love, and dream.
Refugee Week incorporates World Refugee Day (June 20) each year, the International day to honour people who have been forced to flee.
