    Thank you @KGeorgieva for this important message on #WorldRefugeeDay. The @WorldBank’s leadership in mobilizing new resources to help countries hosting refugees is a game changer in how we address forced displacement. https://t.co/zuHehUqBM9

    Trying to learn from Mohammed, a very able Syrian refugee in Jordan, the basics of pottery-making. I have a long, long way to go. https://t.co/IgYXOTFoZk

    In Azraq, Jordan, UNHCR works with @CARE and @LearnEQ to give education opportunities to Syrian refugees through connected learning, with support from @Google. Innovative partnerships in action! https://t.co/xCB7j9wKtl

    I held constructive discussions with Prime Minister @OmarRazzaz and the ministers of Interior and Planning on how to strengthen support to Jordan as it continues to host refugees from Syria and 56 other nationalities. https://t.co/sebEu2TcA3

    Myshara is a young Rohingya refugee in Bangladesh. Every day she faces challenges which no child should be confronted with. Yet, I was so impressed by her calm, wisdom and determination to succeed. An inspiring story at the close of #WorldRefugeeDay. https://t.co/w2bZF9Q5ix

    I am spending #WorldRefugeeDay in Amman to honour Jordan’s historical role in hosting refugees: Palestinians, Iraqis, Syrians and many others. And to tell the world that Jordan’s hospitality must be matched by strong international support. https://t.co/pR5zKtlEKE

    Solidarity with those driven into exile is a universal value. When we turn our backs on refugees, the world is a darker place. Today is #WorldRefugeeDay. https://t.co/eu0sx2rhMQ

    On the eve of #WorldRefugeeDay let us remember that behind this dramatic figure - more than 70 million women and men forced to flee - are real stories of loss and struggle, of courage and strength. Let us work together to give refugees and displaced people hope in the future. https://t.co/JMQzL81xzk

    Only one percent of the world refugees go to university. Germany’s #DAFI scholarship programme, named after Einstein, is a model which other sponsors can follow to expand higher education opportunities for refugees. #TheOther1percent https://t.co/b3S7at9uky

    An honour to speak with the students of Berlin’s Freie Universität @FU_Berlin - a symbol of European values and freedom. And thanks @jaafarAbdulKari for being with me! https://t.co/fgEqb68da3
