    Developing countries host 85 per cent of the world’s refugees. Displacement continues and protection needs are rising. We need countries to do more and help us find safe homes for those whose lives depend on it. https://t.co/iVLk3rdG2M

    An estimated 1.4 million #refugees will be in need of resettlement next year. While #resettlement is not a solution for all the world's refugees, for the few whose lives are in danger and are most at risk it can mean the difference between life and death. https://t.co/ruX51w0EJ8

    On #WorldRefugeeDay, I join @FilippoGrandi and all at UNHCR in paying tribute to the refugees we serve, and honouring their remarkable resilience. Everyone can make a difference. Every action counts. https://t.co/olqArwYOIk

    Let us all reaffirm our commitment today to listen to and amplify the voices of refugee women and girls and to advance their participation, empowerment and leadership. All of us have a role to play in order to bring about change. Every one of us can make a difference. https://t.co/p4NJjmKeek

    Women and girls make up around half the world’s refugee population but as Apajok tells us, “it is a challenge for refugee women to be heard and valued and for our skills to be recognised.” This has to change. https://t.co/BwgwokowbJ

    Today I am thinking of a friend and fellow Australian @BApajok who was born in a refugee camp in Kenya. We share the same passion for human rights and gender equality and met during the Global Refugee Forum, sharing ideas on how we can support refugee women's leadership. https://t.co/35PQMRvxf1

    On #WorldRefugeeDay, I want to pay tribute to all those around the world who’ve been forced to flee their homes. There are 26 million refugees in the world and this means 26 million experiences and stories of adversity, strength, resilience and hope. https://t.co/bhGu1gYun1

    #World Refugee Day is an opportunity to celebrate human diversity. Refugees with disabilities are still facing significant barriers. Thank you #IDA for your support in making humanitarian action more inclusive! https://t.co/xeFTrmzPIH https://t.co/oj6Xelrfks
